Abstract

Background: Arthroscopic reconstruction of torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) with bone patellar tendon bone autograft (BTB) has become the gold standard in treating ACL tear with high success rate. The purpose of this study was to prospectively evaluate the functional outcome after arthroscopic ACL reconstruction using BTB via Rigidfix femoral fixation. Materials and method: We evaluated the result of 21 knees that have been treated with arthroscopic ACL reconstruction using BTB autograft for femoral fixation and bioabsorbable interference screw for tibia from March 2014 to August 2015. The mean follow up period was 18 months. Results and conclusion: The Lysholm score postoperatively was 89.04. 23.8% of the 21 patients have good to excellent outcome, 66.7% patients have good to fair outcome and 9.5% patient have fair outcome. Level of Evidence: IV.
