Arms Assigned Interventions
determining correct tunnel positions Procedure: Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament rupturing
Other Name: ACL reconstruction

Detailed Description:

The tunnel placement in ACL reconstruction is the most important predictor of clinical outcome and there is a high rate of inaccurate tunnel placements, even when performed by experienced surgeons.Tibial and femoral tunnel positions are one of the major concerns in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction which have a great impact on the final surgical results
