    Abstract

    From January 1992 to January 1996, thirty-three patients with persistent clinical and functional knee instability due to anterior cruciate insufficiency underwent ACL reconstruction using central third of the bone-patellar ligament-bone graft. An early experience was presented with average follow-up of 9.8 months (range six to thirty-three months). There thirty-two male and two females. The average age was twenty-four months. Eighty-three percent were involved in football injury. The average time interval from initial injury to operation was twenty-five months. Majority presented with knee pain and giving way. Meniscal tear was the commonest associated injury in more than 70 percent; the lateral meniscus being more frequently injured (42 percent) than the medial meniscus (15 percent). Using modified criteria by Paterson and Trickey (1986), nine patients (27 percent) had good results and twenty-two (67 percent) has satisfactory results. Two patients (6 percent) who had post-operative infection were graded as poor. Functional stability was achieved in twenty-eight (85 percent) and instability persisted in five (15 percent). There were marked clinical improvement in the Lachman and anterior drawer grading post-operatively. The accelerated rehabilitation programme was effective in obtaining early clinical improvement and in reducing post-operative knee stiffness.
