© 2018 Arthroscopy Association of North America The original description of the LaPrade technique for anatomic posterolateral corner reconstruction addresses the 3 main stabilizing structures: the fibular collateral ligament, the popliteus, and the popliteofibular ligament. The use of two separate grafts (originally described with a tendo-Achilles allograft) may restrict the utility of the technique when sources of allograft may be limited and autografts must be used, particularly in the context of multiligament reconstruction. We present a modification of the technique, in which an adjustable cortical button is used for tibial fixation, which allows for the use of a single graft while maintaining the ability to independently tension the popliteus, popliteofibular ligament, and fibular collateral ligament limbs of the graft.
