New DVD explores operative details of ACL reconstruction
Surgical Techniques in Orthopaedics: ACL Reconstruction is a new DVD-video program that explores the operative details of ACL reconstruction. This menu-driven DVD includes surgical demonstrations for hamstring, patellar tendon, quadriceps tendon, and anterior tibialis allograft in full-screen video. The program also contains video demonstrations applying Endobutton and cross-pin femoral fixation techniques. A unique "pitfalls" section helps the orthopaedic surgeon prepare for the unexpected and a dedicated web site offers CME credit.
