Purpose: The purpose of this study is to examine the outcomes of a cohort of patients who have undergone a new surgical technique for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tunnel targeting using the footprint of the torn ACL as soft tissue markers. This is in the setting of anatomical ACLR with remnant preservation. Methods: This retrospective single ce...

... In order to improve patient's outcome and decrease the risk of reinjury, especially for patients with high activity levels, extra-articular procedure, such as anterolateral ligament (ALL) reconstruction, as well as ACL reconstruction with autograft or allograft augmented with a synthetic device method have been proposed [17][18][19][20][21][22]. Early generations of synthetic intra-articular devices raised concerns about non-infectious knee joint synovitis with effusion, but a new generation, such as the ligament augmentation and reconstruction system (LARS; surgical implants and devices), have shown low rates of 0.2% [23]. ...
