  Purpose
The main objective of this study is to compare, using MRI measures with a specialized splint, the persistent rotatory laxity after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using single bundle and double bundle surgical techniques, between the seventh and eighth months after surgery, and for different degrees of knee flexion (0 °, 20 °, 40 °, 60 °).

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Residual rotational laxity during MRI [ Time Frame: 7-8 months post-op ]
    Residual rotational laxity is defined as the difference between the operated knee and the non-operated knee for "D", where D is the distance between the posterior tibial cortex and the center of the circle which forms the lateral femoral condyle. D will be evaluated at 4 angles of flexion (0°, 20°, 40° and 60°) and evaluated as a repeated measure.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Lysholm score [ Time Frame: 7-8 months ]
  • International Knee Documentation Committee score [ Time Frame: 7-8 months ]

Enrollment: 46
Study Start Date: October 2011
Study Completion Date: September 2014
Primary Completion Date: September 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)

Procedure: Single bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
Single bundle anterior cruciate ligamentoplasty
