A 40-year-old woman injured her left knee in a skiing accident. Clinical exam revealed ACL insufficiency and MRI (see ACL repair) confirmed the presence of a torn ACL. The arthroscopic view shows the torn ACL scarred to the posterior cruciate ligament.
The patient was taken to the operating room for minimally invasive ACL repair using a hamstring graft. The affected knee was free draped with a proximal tourniquet and a low profile arthroscopic leg holder. The nonoperative knee was placed in an Allen stirrup.
