Arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) supposed to be the "gold standard" of treatment for many years. Among many different techniques arthroscopic ACLR with a middle third of patella tendon autograft has been considered is the best option for athletic population. Firm and rigid fixation of the graft along the bone tunnels provides an appropriate possibility for early osteointegration process and fast rehabilitation.
