Abstract

Surgical reconstruction of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is indicated in a PCL-deficient knee with symptomatic instability and injury to other ligaments. However, the choice of graft tissues remains controversial. The tibial inlay method has the benefit of preventing the acute turn associated with transtibial reconstruction and permitting accurate anatomic placement of the graft. This study describes an arthroscopic-assisted inlay technique for PCL reconstruction using quadriceps tendon-patellar bone autograft. This technique is a reasonable alternative for PCL reconstruction.
