PCL Reconstruction

Transtibial Technique

Transtibial PCL reconstruction has been shown to be a safe and effective method of treating operative PCL injuries while decreasing the potential morbidity associated with an open posterior approach to the knee. The literature has thus far found clinical outcomes associated with arthroscopic transtibial PCL reconstruction to be comparable to those of open tibial inlay techniques. While our preference is for a single bundle transtibial PCL reconstruction, we recommend that each individual surgeon select the technique that he or she is able to reliably and reproducibly perform.
