graft as a successful procedure that provides functional stabiIity. Complications reported include arthro5brosis, patellofemoral joint pain, patellar tendinitis, patellar tendon rupture, recurrent laxity, posterolateral instabi5ty, medial subluxation of the patella, chronic knee pain and painful neuroma. Among them, anterior knee pain was the rnost frequent eomplication. Authors performed arthroscopy assisted one tunnel technique for reconsction of the ACL using autogenous Bone Patellar tendon-Rone (BPTB) in 87 patients. Patients were divid@d into two groups based on the harvested side (knee) of the BPTB. Group 1 consisted of 45 cases of ipsilateral side and group 2 consisted of 42 cases of contralsteral side in harvesting the BPTB. The patients were foll4wed up for at least 12 months to determine whether using the BPTB harvested from the contralateral knee wguld reduce the anterior knee pain at the ACL reconstructed knee. Althaugh there were no statistically signifiqant differences between group 1 and 2 with regard to anterior knee pain, the prevalence of the anterior knee pain was less frequent in group 2 than group 1. This study showed that using the contralateral side harvested autogenous patellar tendon would be a possible protector for anterior knee pain and assists for early rehabilitation.
