To study short term outcome of arthroscopic single bundle ACL reconstruction using quadruple hamstring graft by transportal technique.
Introduction: Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction is the ‘Gold Standard’ treatment for ACL tear. 70% of ACL injuries occur through non-contact mechanisms. The goal of surgery is to prevent instability & restore the functions of torn ligament & creating a stable knee. Various grafts are used but quadruple hamstring graft has excellent material strength with excellent functional outcomes.
Methodology: A cohort of 20 complete ACL tear, treated with arthroscopic single bundle ACL reconstruction using quadruple hamstring graft by transportal technique between Sep 2015 and Sep 2016 were analyzed at minimum 3months follow up.
Results: 20 out of 20 patients had excellent result. Assessment was done using “Modified Cincinnati Scoring System”. No major complication were noted.
