Abstract

An arthroscopic technique for double-bundled reconstruction for posterior cruciate ligament with quadriceps tendon-patellar bone autograft is presented. Anterolateral and posteromedial tunnels were created to simulate and reproduce the double-bundle structure of the posterior cruciate ligament. The bone plug is situated at the tibial tunnel and fixed by a titanium interference screw. Each of the bundles of tendon graft is rigidly fixed at the femoral tunnel with a bioabsorbable screw.
