Surgical technique: Medial collateral ligament reconstruction using achilles allograft for combined knee ligament injury
Medial Collateral Ligament, Knee
Reconstructive Surgical Procedures
This technique uses allograft that provides bone-to-bone healing on the femur, requires small incisions, and creates isometric reconstruction. When performed with a cruciate reconstruction, knee stability can be restored at 2 to 5 years followup. In patients with MCL with primary ACL reconstruction, return to preinjury activity level in recreational athletes can be achieved.
