|Abstract:||Surgical reconstruction of the knee posterior cruciate ligament (P.C.L.) still remains as a major therapeutic challenge. In this paper, we assessed 30 patients submitted to surgical reconstruction of the P.C.L. with a technique of tendinous graft fixation on tibial bed by direct approach ("INLAY"). Twenty-eight male patients and 2 female patients, with mean age of 31.10 years, participated on the study. The average injury time was 34.24 months. In 67% of the cases, injury was secondary to motorcycle accidents. Chondral injuries and knee anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries were present in 67% and 33% of the cases, respectively. Patients were assessed objectively (posterior drawer test) and subjectively (Lysholm's Scale). Mean post-operative follow-up time was 21.7 months. About 66% of the cases were rated as good and excellent at the subjective and objective evaluation. The statistical analysis showed a similar behavior for both evaluations. Post-operative clinical outcomes achieved in this study have encouraged us to keep using this surgical technique.|
