80 patients were randomized to undergo double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using either the transportal (TP) or outside-in (OI) technique in order to compare the accuracy of femoral tunnel length between the methods. Following evaluations over 2 weeks, it was observed that intraoperative femoral tunnel lengths were longer intraoperatively than postoperatively for both gro...
