Abstract: Introduction: ACL avulsion mainly occurs from its tibial attachment. Open are arthroscopic fixation is required in comminuted avulsions. Screw fixation is stronger construct than any other modality. In this study we have included patients operated by arthroscopic fixation with suture disc and endobutton. This is cheaper modality with simple instrumentations. Purpose of study was to assess the clinicoradiological outcome of such patients.
Material Methods: 15 patients were included in the study. Who were assessed by lachman test and radiographs pre operatively, post operatively and follow up. Suture disc and endobutton were used for the arthroscopic fixation. Knee bending exercises and quadriceps strengthening exercises advised post operatively.
Result: Union was present in 100% patients on radiographic evaluation. 93.3% patients were returned to their pre injury status within one year. 6.6% patient developed extension lag and stiffness. Infection was not seen in any patient.
Conclusion: This is newer and cheap modality of fixation with satisfactory outcome. Large sample size studies are required.
