Length of Graft   |  List of figures   |  Completion of Pilot Hole

With the knee bent to 100 one can palpate the posterior cortical border of the notch using an angled bone pick. The tool is pulled 5 mm forward and a pilothole is made in the left knee at 10-11 O'clock and in the right at 1-2 O'clock. In this way only approximately 2 mm of bony bridge will remain posteriorly.
