Dr Macgroarty presents latest ACL techniques at 2014 Australian Knee Society Meeting

Dr Macgroarty presented his case series of hamstring sparing ACL Reconstruction at the 2014 Australian Knee Society Meeting held in Melbourne.

Dr Macgroarty discussed the surgical technique used for the “all inside” short graft technique sparing one of the hamstring tendons normally used in ACL Reconstruction.

In Dr Macgroarty’s series, 22 cases have been undertaken to date with promising early results. Dr Macgroarty outlined that further research is required to confirm the potential long term benefits of this technique.

Dr Macgroarty is currently enrolling patients in a comparative trial looking at early post operative pain relief using the short graft technique with respect to conventional hamstring harvest techniques. He hopes to present his findings at next year’s AKS meeting.
