Aims and Objective: The present study was conducted to observe and evaluate the outcome results of arthroscopic ACL reconstruction by hamstring grafts using Endobutton- CL technique for femoral fixation and Bioabsorbable Intrafix Screw technique for tibial fixation in ACL injury. Methods: We prospectively studied 30 patients of both sex aged between 18-35 years posted for arthroscopic ACL reconstruction. All patients had hamstring grafts (7 mm) and EndoButton femoral fixation and tibial fixation with a Bioabsorbable Intrafix Screw. Patients were evaluated for pain, functioning and stability of knee using validated knee scoring systems which included VAS scales, tegner activity scale, IKDC score and knee society score at regular follow up with average follow up being 15 months. Results: All patients had a stable knee and an excellent functional outcome. The four strand graft and the method of graft fixation used in present research provided stable ACL reconstruct and improved knee stability which helped to achieve a normal knee function. Postoperatively, we observe significant improvement in the VAS, IKDC, knee society score and tegner activity scoring systems. Conclusion: The technique of arthroscopic ACL reconstruction offers an excellent knee function, knee stability and restoration of preoperative functional status with minimal complications.
