Abstract: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) damage or injury is the most frequent type of sports injury to the knee and could result in recurrent knee instability, meniscal tears, and articular cartilage degeneration. This study aim was to compare results of single bundle and double bundle double tunnel surgical procedures for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Patients were enrolled from May 2018 to November 2018 and followed up for six months duration. Before surgery, we compared the mean Tegner Lysholm score between the SB and DB group which was 52.50 and 56.0 respectively and differences among them were not statistically significant (p=0.076). After 6 months of surgery TL score between SB and DB reconstruction were compared and differences among them were found to be statistically significant (p<0.05). We compared IKDC score before surgery between the two groups the SB and DB reconstruction before surgery, the mean IKDC score was 44.30 and 46.20 respectively and differences among them were not statistically significant (p=0.314). After 6 months of surgery SB and DB reconstruction groups were compared and differences among them were found to be statistically significant (p<0.05). After 6 months of surgery the mean IKDC score of SB was 71.25 and mean IKDC score of DB was 76.16 whereas mean TL score of SB reconstruction group was 81.15 and of DB was 86.71. Lachman and anterior drawer test results were also compared preoperatively and postoperatively but was not found to be significant. Study concluded that double bundle ACL reconstruction is better management for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction as compared to single bundle ACL reconstruction in ACL injuries.
