The lectures will be directly correlated to what the attendee will perform in the laboratory.
The attendee is expected to learn how to diagnose a PCL tear followed by options available for reconstruction.

Specifics of a PCL reconstruction will be demonstrated both theoretically and through video presentations in the lectures. The attendee will then perform these procedures under supervision and discuss issues such as graft harvesting, preferred portals, use fluoroscopy or not, and single bundle vs double bundle.

Management of multiligament injuries in the emergency room, early repair or late reconstruction will be discussed with emphasis on the posteromedial side (acute MCL repair and MCL reconstruction) and the posterolateral side (acute posterolateral repair and posterolateral reconstruction).
