Medial collateral ligament (MCL) can be frequently damaged with ACL injuries,especially during external rotation, slight flexion and valgus loading of the knee.Inpatients combined ACL (partially ruptured) and MCL injuries, percutaneousMCL reefing by using PDS suture material, shrinkage with radiofrequency andregularization of the ACL was performed. The aim of this study was to describethe functional and clinical results of the 16-patients with combined partial ACLrupture and MCL injury who were treated by percutaneous MCL reefing. Thefunctional level was evaluated using hop test, IKDC, Lysholm, Tenger, KOSADLSscores. Hamstring and Quadriceps isokinetic muscle strength werecollected at 60 -/sc and 180 -/sec velocities. There were no differences in musclestrength, hop test between the affected and unaffected sides. Scores for thefunctional level were near the high score. Likert scale for satisfaction of thetreatment was 5. Acute reinforcement of MCL in association to regularization ofACL is safe and reliable, reduce stress on the repaired ligaments and provide usmore stable and strength knees.
