Abstract

Revision ACL presents many technical issues that are not seen in the primary ACL reconstruction. A variety of surgical techniques for revising ACL reconstruction have been described in the literature to address these concerns. The purpose of this article is to present a novel technique consisting in a non-anatomic double-bundle ACL revision reconstruction, using a fresh-frozen Achilles tendon allograft with soft tissue fixation. This technique is a valid treatment option when faced with a complex scenario such as ACL revision surgery.
