ACL Reconstruction

Type of  ACL Reconstruction

Selection of Graft

The surgical ACL reconstruction is done using grafts, these grafts maybe

  • Autografts –tendons from patients own body usually
    • Quadriceps tendon graft or
    • Hamstring tendon  graft or
    • The patellar tendon graft
  • Allograft – tendons taken from the deceased donor. Usually autografts are preferred over allograft as the likelihood of rupturing again is minimal as also the chances of secondary infection less and Hamstring tendon autograft has an added advantage that it regenerates over time making the graft more stable.


Recommended: Recovery after ACL surgery in India


Symptoms of ACL Rupture are

  • Severe Pain
  • Swelling in the injured knee

It is important to have accurate diagnosis and knowledge severity of injury

  • Clinical examination:  Physical examination is done to understand the type of injury wherein the doctor will access the function of knee joint by moving it in different positions.
  • Pivot shift test: One of the main tests to understand ACL injury or laxity , it tells about the unstability. If test is positive a subluxation will occur at 20 to 40 degree of flexion which shows ACL damage. 
  • Anterior drawer test: Clinically done in cases of suspected  cruciate ligament rupture, the patient is made supine , with hip flexed at 45 degree , knee flexed to 90 degree, hamstring relaxed, and then pulled posterior to anterior direction, excessive displacement of tibia anteriorly suggests that ACL has traveling tear.
  • Lachman test: Also clinically performed by the orthopedician to diagnose rupture of anterior cruciate ligament, if the test is positive there will be increased forward/upward  movement of tibia and a significant  soft end point when this movement ends.


Helpful: Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction


Medical Investigations

  • X-ray to rule out fracture
  • MRI to evaluate ACL injury and also to see if there is more damage to other knee ligaments, tendons
  • Routine tests to declare you fit for surgery



During the Procedure

  • The surgeon will make around 2-3 small incisions around the damaged knee.
  • An arthroscope that is a thin tube fitted with a fibre optic camera which allows the surgeon to see inside the knee clearly is inserted through one of the incision.
  • First of all the torn ACL is removed and the area is cleaned.
  • Through the other incision surgical drills are put in and small holes are made into the femur and the tibia.
  • The graft is then passed through these holes and held in place with screws or plugs or staples.
  • During the surgery if the surgeon feels the other ligaments , tendons , cartilage of the knee are also damaged he may repair them.
  • Incision in skin then closed with stitches or staples.

After Procedure

  • Care is to be taken to keep the incision area dry and clean to avoid infection.
  • You may need to wear a knee brace for 1-4 weeks as also you will need physical rehabilitation to help gain back the stability and function of the knee joint which may take around 4-6 months.
