Abstract

Treatment of posterior cruciate ligament injuries remains controversial, particularly in the case of partial or incomplete tears in the context of a multiple ligament–injured knee. Suture augmentation, or internal bracing, has been shown in other ligament and tendon repairs or reconstructions to provide stable biomechanics and facilitate early return to activity. In the knee, suture augmentation has previously been used for the treatment of medial collateral ligament tears and in the support of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions. We describe our arthroscopic technique for suture augmentation of incomplete posterior cruciate ligament injuries.
