Lecture: Revision ACL: Tips and Tricks  

Abstract: 

ACL revision sometimes appear as an easy primary case and other times as a great challenge regarding bone stock, old tunnel placements, old hardware and anatomical deviations.


If decision to revise is made on valid grounds meticulous planning and a tool box with different potential approaches is needed for a successful procedure. Graft options, surgical tactics and combined surgical steps will be illustrated and discussed.
