50 patients, undergoing anatomic double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction, were randomized to have the femoral tunnel created using either the transtibial or anteromedial portal technique. Accuracies of the tunnel placement, angle, and length were measured 7 days following reconstruction. The results displayed that the femoral tunnels were positioned deeper, lower, and nearer ...
