Single bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: surgical technique and results

Author
Organization
Abstract
Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries are not that common but chronic PCL deficiency can lead to chronic disability and functional limitations. In these situations, the PCL reconstruction can be done. It is also commonly carried out during the treatment of a multiligament injured knee. Several different surgical techniques are described in the literature. This article outlines our surgical approach using the single bundle technique. We also carried out a review of the clinical and biomechanical studies concerning the single bundle PCL reconstruction.
