80 patients with chronic rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), scheduled for ACL reconstruction, were randomized to the use of OrthoPilot system for computerized optical tracking and navigation system or a standard manual targeting technique. The use of computer-assisted navigation resulted in more accurate tunnel placement in the femur (but not the tibia) than the traditional arthrosco...
