Abstract: 
Background: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are exceedingly common. The psychological impact of such an injury can be quite devastating to the individual and should not be underestimated, particularly in the high-level athlete. Typically, an athlete will miss approximately six to nine months of competitive play as a result of the ACL injury.
Aim and Objectives: The aim of the study was to report on both knee, ankle and foot functions via evaluations using clinical examination, functional scores assessment and isokinetic tests after harvesting autogenous peroneus longus tendon for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction focusing on the donor site morbidity with a minimum 1-year follow-up period.
Materials and Methods: This Prospective Study was conducted at a tertiary care centre in north kerala. 25 patients undergoing ACL reconstruction with peroneus longus tendon were included in the study. Patients with ACL injury undergoing reconstruction with peroneus longus tendon were followed up at, 6months and one year.
Discussion: Based on the this study, average KOOS score pre op was 76, at 6 months post op it was 85 and 90 at 12 months (p<0.001). Average IKDC score pre op was 62, at 6 months post op it was 76 and it was 83.12 at 12 months post op (p<0.001). Average Tegner Lysholm knee score pre op was 66.52, at 6 months it was 81 and at 12 month post op it was 85.64 (p<0.001).
Conclusion: We recommend peroneus longus may be used as a graft option in ACL reconstruction in the selected group of patients as it is easier to harvest, possess adequate graft thickness and have excellent post-operative knee outcome and ankle outcome scores.
