An offset guide position in arthroscopic view by use of lateral infrapatellar portal. A quantitative surgical technique to insert a guide wire for AM bundle reconstruction. Through the tibial tunnel, a hook-shaped tip of a 5-mm offset guide (G) was set at the “over-the-top” portion of the lateral condyle at 90 – 100 degrees of knee flexion, and then, slightly rotated so that the tip of the guide wire was aimed at the “1:30” or “10:30” orientation. PCL: Posterior cruciate ligament, LFC: Lateral femoral condyle.
