Abstract: Introduction: Anterior cruciate ligament injury is quite common in young active individuals. Non-surgical methods leads to early osteoarthritis and painful meniscal tears. There are variety of surgical methods from internal bracing with repair, auto grafts with bone patellar tendon bone, hamstrings, quadriceps tendon, quadriceps tendon bone and peroneus longus tendon and variety of allografts. One of the best among them is bone patellar tendon bone auto graft for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Materials and Methods: A cohort of 16 cases were studied for a period of 6 months postoperatively for the functional outcome of arthroscopically assisted anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with bone patellar tendon bone graft. Result: This study comprised of 16 patients and followed for minimum of 6 months. Success rate is 100%, with 92% graded as excellent to good and rest 8 % with fair functional results. Conclusion: We conclude that Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction with bone patellar tendon bone graft has good functional results and high success rate.
