Abstract: The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) aids in stabilizing the knee joint. ACL is most commonly injured ligament, commonly among sport players. ACL reconstruction is one of the most common orthopaedic techniques performed worldwide. Peroneus longus tendon (PLT) is a promising graft in ACL reconstruction, apart from patellar tendon and the hamstring tendon. We aimed to evaluate the dynamics of foot in patients undergoing ACL reconstruction with PLT. Total 42 patients undergoing ACL reconstruction with PLT were included above the age of 18 years. Patient assessment was done based on Constant - American Ankle and Foot score preoperatively, at 3 months, 6 months and 1 year after surgery. The mean age of the patients was 32.24 ? 7.81 years. Majority of the patients (42.86%) belonged to the age group of 31 to 40 years, and there were 29 males and 13 females. The clinical foot and ankle score pre - operatively was 100 in all the patients, which was at 3 months declined to 90 among 30.95% and to 80 in 4.76% patients. At 6 months, 37 patients continued in the study with the score was 100 in 83.33% and 90 in 4.76% patients, while at 12 months 26 patients were continued for follow up, all had the score of 100. The pre - operative mean score was 100, while at 3 months it was 95.95 ? 5.80, at 6 months 99.46 ? 2.26 and at 1 year it was again 100. So, present study gave the satisfactory results with insignificant change in the clinical foot and ankle score till 1 year follow up. Therefore, we recommend the use of PLT for ACL reconstruction as it has least effect on the foot and ankle dynamics.
