The results for the first 50 patients who had arthroscopically assisted reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) with autogenous patellar tendon graft were reviewed retrospectively. Forty one patients were available for evaluation after a minimum period of 5 years follow up. All patients had been managed with a standard programme of physical therapy. Subjective, objective, clinical and functional tests were performed according to the International Knee Documentation Commiftee scoring form (IKDC). Early results demonstrate excellent stability, preservation of motion and encouraging evaluation by the IKDC form.
