ACL Preservation with Central Augmentation Using the FlipCutter® and TightRope® RT

Gregory DiFelice, MD, (New York, NY) demonstrates ACL Preservation using a tensioning stitch to secure the remaining ACL back to the femoral wall, combined with a central augmentation with a hamstring graft. This ACL Preservation technique is ideal for a proximal “80/20” tear pattern. For this common tear pattern, ACL Preservation with Central Augmentation offers native anatomic placement, natural blood supply and proprioception, while minimizing bone tunnels.
