Review Articles

The past 3+ decades have been a period of intense interest in the anterior cruciate ligament. Graft choices, techniques, and fixation devices have all evolved. Our understanding of the anatomy has improved. Our follow-up and criteria for success have also expanded. Over the next several years advanced repair techniques, extra-articular augmentation, and addressing elevated tibial slope will all have to have their indications defined.
