Abstract

This technical note discusses an anterior cruciate ligament graft preparation technique to simplify and ease graft visualization, insertion, and fixation. Our technique incorporates a 2-mm central trough in the bone plug of the graft to improve one's ability to efficiently identify and orient the anterior cruciate ligament graft during insertion, and ensure correct screw placement and fixation.
