    Where can I find in writing that an ACL reconstruction is performed in the patellofemoral compartment? Thanks.

    I wish I knew! Usually when my surgeons refer to the ACL or PCL, they are working in the notch.

    correct...I just need to show him - in writing - that the notch is part of the patellofemoral compartment.
