Characterization of the insertion site anatomy in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction has recently received increased attention in the literature, coinciding with a growing interest in anatomic reconstruction. The results of a study authored by Fu, et.al. may be used as a clinical guide for surgeons to evaluate tunnel position. Such analysis may encourage standardization of surgical technique and thus lead to more accurate placement of anatomic anterior cruciate ligament bone tunnels and more accurate reporting of the results. Toward this end, the video supplement demonstrates (1) a method to quantify tibial and femoral tunnel positions and (2) the surgical technique to determine the optimal location of anatomically positioned anteromedial and posterolateral tunnels on the femur and tibia.
