Abstract
A technique for posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is presented. Autologous hamstring tendons are selected as a graft. An interference screw is used for femoral fixation. A suspension device is used for tibial fixation to bring the fixation closer to the articular end of the tibial tunnel. Single diameter tunnels of the same diameter as the graft are created in an outside-in direction.
