Abstract

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction techniques continue to evolve as surgeons seek to improve surgical process and outcome measures. On the basis of published data showing improved biomechanics, many surgeons now attempt to better re-create native ACL anatomy in reconstruction. Use of flexible reamer technology and a 70° arthroscope allows for excellent visualization of the native ACL anatomy, as well as precise and independent drilling of the tibial and femoral reconstruction tunnels, while offering several surgical and technical advantages compared with other drilling techniques. This technical note with accompanying video describes our use of the Smith & Nephew Clancy anatomic cruciate guide/flexible drill system (Smith & Nephew, London, England) with a 70° arthroscope.
