Brief Summary:

This is a monocentric, prospective and randomized trial to compare two different techniques used in normal practice for the reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament in arthroscopy.

The experimental group (group 1) will undergo a reconstruction technique where semitendinosus and gracilis will preserve their insertion at the level of the hamstring whereas in the control group (group 2) the semitendinosus and gracilis tendons will be disengaged from their insertion on the hamstring .

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Graft integration by the Signal / Noise Quotient (SNQ) at 6 months [ Time Frame: 6 months after ACL reconstruction intervention ]
    Signal intensity of the graft evaluated by the Signal / Noise Quotient (SNQ) during MRI 3 Tesla


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Graft integration by the Signal / Noise Quotient (SNQ) at 3 and 12 months [ Time Frame: 3, 12 months after ACL reconstruction intervention ]
    Signal intensity of the graft evaluated by the Signal / Noise Quotient (SNQ) during MRI 3 Tesla

  2. Right anatomical graft position [ Time Frame: 12 months after ACL reconstruction intervention ]
    Evaluation of right anatomical graft position by MRI 3 TESLA

  3. Anterior tibial translation [ Time Frame: 3, 6, 12 months after ACL reconstruction intervention ]
    Anterior tibial translation will be measured in millimeters using the arthrometer Rolimeter

  4. Anterior knee joint instability [ Time Frame: 3, 6, 12 months after ACL reconstruction intervention ]
    Anterior knee joint instability will be measured by the device KiRA (Kinematic Rapid Assessment) by the parameters of the pivot-shift test

  5. IKDC (International Knee Documentation Committee) questionnaire [ Time Frame: 3, 6, 12 months after ACL reconstruction intervention ]
    Test to evaluate post-surgery instability with a scores range from 0 points to 100 points; patients report symptoms, sports and daily living activities

  6. Tegner activity scale [ Time Frame: 3, 6, 12 months after ACL reconstruction intervention ]
    Test to evaluate post-surgery instability with a scores range from 0 points to 10 points; patients describe their current level of activity and that before injury.
