Abstract

Pretibial cyst formation is a rare occurrence after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. We report this complication after ACL reconstruction using a hamstring autograft. Bone grafting of the original tibial tunnels during revision surgeries after failed ACL reconstruction could prevent this rare complication.
