Abstract | Full Text

Basing on the anatomic examination results the main principles of safe bone tunnels formation at arthroscopic plasty of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) were formulated. Additional instrumentation of original design and original surgical technique directed to minimization of the risk of popliteal artery injury at tibial bone tunnel formation were proposed. During the period from 2010 through 2013 twenty one patients with PCL injuries were operated on at endoscopic surgery department. In 20 n patients treatment results were assessed in 6 and 12 months after intervention. Evaluation was performed by clinical results, IKDC forms, Lysholm - Gillquist score and visual pain scale. Preoperatively mean point by IKDC questionnaires was 46.80±18.07, by Lysholm - Gillquist score - 51.62±20.34 and in 6 months postoperatively - 68.64±10.13 and 73.84±11.16, respectively, that was statistically significant higher than prior to operation (p
