The concentric placement of the screw within the sheath ensures 0 graft-to-bone placement with improved engagement. Several biomechanical and clinical studies vio shown that femoral cross-pin and tibial Intrafix or Bio-intrafix devices provide increased strength and stiffness to the graft fixation. Presentation of the patients within 3 months of their injury was an inclusion criterion for the study.

The mean of difference of KT in preoperative and postoperative evaluation was 3. Similarly, the mean anterior translation of tibia improved from 7.
