The aim of this study is to assess the functional outcomes of all-inside technique for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction (ACLR) using semitendinosus autograft, in young patients group.

Method: 40 patients were included in our study, which had anterior cruciate ligament complete tear, resulting in knee instability and pain, for which they underwent all-inside anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, in which semitendinosus autograft was used for reconstruction, with at least 1 year of follow-up and minimum of 4 weeks of physiotherapy postoperatively.

Results: Early retune to work, load bearing along with subjective score were assessed. Mean VAS score improved from 9.2 to 1.2, mean IKDC improved from 43 to 96 while Lysholm score improved from 62 to 96 in 16 months post-surgery. Lachman test was negative in 96% of patient’s postoperatively. Patients returned to work and started weight bearing fairly early (on 14th post surgery day)

Conclusion: All inside ACL reconstruction using semitendinosus autograft has good results in terms of subjective and objective outcomes in young patients. Further studies are needed to compare all inside technique with standard ACL reconstruction.
