Abstract
This article describes a modified arthroscopic technique of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using quadrupled hamstring tendon graft. The autogenous semitendinosus and gracilis grafts are harvested without detachment of the tibial insertion. To obtain longer grafts, the accessory tibial insertions of the hamstring tendons are dissected. The EndoButton (Acufex Microsurgical, Andover, MA) is used for femoral fixation and two spiked staples are used for tibial fixation in a belt buckle fashion. Then the residual anterior laxity is restored by additional absorbable interference screw fixations. In this technique, more viable graft is obtained and more firm distal fixation is achieved by preservation of the tibial insertion of hamstring tendons.
