Abstract

Several reconstructive techniques exist to treat posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) deficiency. The purpose of this study is to report knee function and clinical stability after PCL reconstruction (PCLR) using an all-inside technique. Thirty-two patients with isolated or combined PCL injuries treated with all-inside PCLR using soft tissue allograft were included. Documented physical examination findings including ligamentous stability examination were recorded. All-inside, single-bundle PCLR demonstrated satisfactory clinical and functional outcomes comparable with previous other PCLR techniques. The advantages of this technique include bone preservation, minimizing risk of tunnel convergence, and allowing for sequential graft tensioning.
