Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction and Preservation: The Single–Anteromedial Bundle Biological Augmentation (SAMBBA) Technique
Preservation of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) remnant during ACL reconstruction has the advantages of improved vascularity and synovial encircling of the graft tendon. We describe a technique called single–anteromedial bundle biological augmentation (SAMBBA) using complete preservation of the ACL remnant, as well as preservation of the semitendinosus tibial insertion, that uses standard portals and equipment.
