Rupture bilatérale du ligament croisé antérieur chez un joueur de ski traitée par une ligamentoplastie DIDT sous arthroscopie en un seul temps opératoire

Adil El Alaoui, Ilyas Rabhi


We report the case of a 25-year-old patient who suffered a ski accident that causing a serious knees sprain. The patient underwent immobilization by plaster knees. After 12 rehabilitation sessions, good progress was noticed in terms of pain. However, the patient is unstable when walking and a positive Trillat Lachman sign at both knees is observed. MRI of Knees confirmed a bilateral rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (figures A, B). We conducted a ligament ACL with the DIDT technique on both knees, beginning with the left- side. After the surgery, everything was normal. Xray controls (face and profile views) of both knees showed a good positioning of implants (figures C, D). Rehabilitation was undertaken the day following the surgery. Six months later, the patient was able to return to sport.
