Answer: Correct anatomic tunnel positioning is a key part of ACL reconstruction. In one of a few studies that have been tested, results showed that the variability or standard deviations were on the high side with standard deviations of 3.2mm between the intra and inter observers. So even though this technique is tactful, future observations need to be conducted to reduce this variability. Resources: 1. Shafizadeh, S., Balke, M., Kelz, S., Hoeher, J., & Banerjee, M.
