Radiographic landmarks for tunnel positioning in double-bundle ACL reconstructions
The purpose of this study was to establish quantitative and qualitative radiographic landmarks for ntifying the femoral and tibial attachment sites of the AM and PL bundles of the native ACL and to assess the reproducibility of identification of these landmarks using intraclass correlation coefficients. It was hypothesized that the radiographic positions of the AM and PL bundles could be defined in relation to anatomic landmarks and radiographic reference lines.
