Lecture: Return to Sport after ACL Reconstruction


More than 90% of studies did not use objective criteria to permit return to sports. Return-To Sports (RTS) decision making should include objective physical examination data, validated RTS (functional, psychological) testing, consideration of biological healing, contextual factors (type of sport, time of season, position, level of competition, etc.) and concomitant injuries. 

Lecture: Double Bundle ACL Improves Rotational Instability 


ACL consists of two primal functional bundles, and those two bundles play different functional roles and contribute differently to knee stability throughout the range of motion. I summarize the basic knowledge and current concepts of anatomic double-bundle ACL reconstruction using hamstrings tendons.
