Abstract

There has been significant improvement in the development of reconstructive techniques for tears of the posterior cruciate ligament. Despite these advances, this is still a relatively uncommon procedure with even less known about the optimal method for revision of a failed primary reconstruction. This article will review the pertinent preoperative evaluation and surgical technique for a revision posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Complications of this procedure and the limited data regarding outcome will also be addressed.
