Chapter 31 Video 1: Transphyseal ACL Reconstruction

January 05, 2018

Contributors: Theodore J Ganley, MD; Christopher John Defrancesco, BS

This video demonstrates ACL reconstruction with using an 8-strand hamstring autograft, transphyseal femoral and tibial sockets, an all-soft tissue graft, and cortical button fixation both proximally and distally. Landmarks are outlined and tendons are harvested. These are prepared into an 8 strand graft. Portals are established and a diagnostic arthroscopy is performed. The ACL tear is confirmed and its femoral and tibial footprints are debrided as needed. Any meniscal pathology is addressed at this point. The ACL footprints are prepared and the femoral and tibial sockets are drilled. The graft is passed with graft retrieval sutures first through the femoral socket and then through the tibial socket. Once it is centered within the joint, the knee is cycled, the graft is properly tensioned, and extra suture is trimmed. The patient’s surgical wounds are then closed, and post-operative rehabilitation protocols are begun.
