Lateral extra-articular augmentation (LEA) of anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions significantly reduces graft failure rates. Currently, proximally fixed LEA procedures are popular techniques. However, there are concerns about these techniques regarding anterior cruciate ligament tunnel collision, kinematic overconstraint, and increasing lateral-compartment contact forces. These issues are potentially avoided by the modified Ellison procedure, which is a distally fixed LEA technique. This article describes the surgical details of this easily reproducible technique.
