Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most frequent forms of knee trauma. The traditional surgical treatment for ACL rupture is single-bundle reconstruction. However, during the past few years there has been a shift in interest toward double-bundle reconstruction to closely restore the native ACL anatomy. This paper evaluates the basis for double-bundle ACL reconstruction including anatomy, biomechanics and kinematics, describes our surgical technique, and discusses why we prefer anatomic double-bundle ACL reconstruction, as well as its outcome, the choices, and the controversies of double-bundle ACL reconstruction. Pitfalls of traditional ACL surgery are also discussed, the recognition of which is the key to performing anatomic ACL reconstruction

    • ...For anatomical ACL, it is best to visualize the proximal stump of the ACL [20]; however, in chronic cases the ACL attachment can have disappeared and bony landmarks can be difficult to find in the notch area by arthroscopy, so the use of a guide could aid the surgeon in performing anatomic ACL reconstruction if the technique could be standardized...

    • ...Having an accessory AM portal as the viewing portal has the advantage of a better visualization of lateral wall of the intercondylar notch and consequently of the ACL footprint and a notchplasty is not necessary to view the lateral wall of the notch [7, 16, 18, 20]...

    • ...The clinical need for better reproducing the anatomic structure and functional behavior of the native ACL led to the development of new surgical procedures, dedicated to better control rotational and dynamic laxities of the knee [22], and to reproduce the kinematics of the normal joint [29]; this clinical research specifically led to the development of double-bundle (DB) ACL reconstructions [1, 14, 23]...
