Outcome of Anatomic Single Bundle Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Using Quadruple Hamstring Autograft
Keywords:Quadrupled hamstring autograft, Tegner Lysholm Score, graft diameter
Introduction: Arthroscopic Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using quadruple hamstring autograft is an established and widely practiced surgery for ACL injured knee.The goal of ACL reconstruction is to enable the patient to return to preinjury status. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the functional outcome of anatomic single bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using quadruple hamstring autograft.
Methods: This was a prospective analytical study of 30 patients with ACL injury who underwent arthroscopic ACL reconstruction using hamstring autograft in National Trauma Center, NAMS from January 2020 to June 2020. Functional outcome using Tegner Lysholm score and the complications were assessed.
Results:Mean age of patient was 27 ± 42 years. Most common mode of injury was fall injury. Mean graft diameter was 7.6 ± 0.45 mm. Tegner Lysholm score improved from pre operative score 60.76 ± 1.23 to postoperative score 91 ± 2.43. 12 patients (40%) had excellent outcome and 18 patients (60%) had good functional outcome. No major complications were seen.
Conclusion: Arthroscopic anatomic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using quadrupled hamstring autograft is an effective method for ACL injury and gives excellent to good functional outcome .
