Before arthroscopic advancements, anterior cruciate ligament tears were managed via primary open repair, requiring an arthrotomy. Anterior cruciate ligament repair was popular in the 1970s and 1980s but was discontinued because of a high rate of failure. Several recent studies have suggested that preservation of the anterior cruciate ligament remnant is beneficial for proprioception and vascularity, which may improve recovery of joint positioning and enhance revascularization with better graft integration. This video describes combined acute anterior cruciate ligament repair and Segond fracture repair.
