This content collection provides rationale and technique guidance for ACL reconstruction options.

Quad tendon graft for ACL

 
It features video topics on the use of quad tendon grafts, accurate tunnel placement and ACL reconstruction in the skeletally immature patient.

In addition we added a useful anatomical review of the ACL and some related resources for download.

    In this video, Dr Mary Lloyd Ireland discusses how to tell when a patient is ready to return to play after an ACL reconstruction. She shows a variety of tests that should be performed to determine if the patient is ready. If the patient is not ready, these tests also help them realize that they are not ready based on their performance.
