ACL reconsruction video using hamstring harvesting needed !!
« on: August 23, 2005, 08:56:04 PM »
Hi all
I had an ACL reconstruction operation  last year .The graft used was the 'biceps femoris' and i would like to watch a detailed video of how its done(how the incisions are done , the drilling ...).Most of the videos i found on the web are arthroscopic i.e the view is from inside the knee but i need to see the operation from outside.
Thanks a lot

If you go to the 'cruciate ligaments' section of the forum, there's a thread I started asking where the ACL demo has gone, which has some fab links  :)

Someone posted a really awesome video on here a few months back. It was a real movie, not an animation. I'll try and hunt it down for you.

I do not quite understand why you need to see it?

OK the good news is that I found it. The bad news is that it's on my hard drive and it's almost 40mg (big) so I can't email it to you. The kinda good news is that if you go back through this section you're bound to find the original post with the link, which is where I got it.

And for the record, it's not heaps detailed but it's pretty interesting to watch.
