Synopsis

153 patients with anterior cruciate ligament ruptures were randomized to receive repair based upon the single bundle (SB) technique or double bundle (DB) technique. The results from 2 year follow-up indicated that there were no significant differences in knee or stability scores between the two groups. However, it was found that the SB group had significantly more failures and invisible grafts.
