A recent growing interest in double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (DBACLR) reflect the effort of producing better clinical outcomes in traditional single-bundle reconstruction, which showed considerable rate of dissatisfaction in restoration of stability and function of the anterior cruciate ligament deficient knee. There is plenty of evidence that DBACLR has theoretical advantages in anatomical, biomechanical, biological, kinematical, and possibly clinical standpoint compared with traditional one but still a lack of available clinical outcome studies with sufficient follow-up to demonstrate the real advantages of DBACLR. The aim of this article is to review the evidence to support double-bundle technique and to address controversy exists over the usefulness of this technique.
