Arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with all-inside® technique
The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) provides postero-anterior stability to the knee. The incidence of ACL ruptures is 1/3,000. The gold standard in diagnosis is diagnostic arthroscopy. Arthroscopic reconstruction offers the best results.
A sample of 34 patients was recruited. The average obtained in the Lysholm scale was 87.82 at the 15
postoperative week. There was a statistically significant difference in score of the Lysholm scale and the range of mobility when comparing the score prior to surgery with 10 and 15 postoperative weeks.
Conclusions: All-inside technique is an adequate therapeutic option for patients with ACL tears
that allows good results in short-term follow-up
