BACKGROUND The tibial fixation site has been reported to be the weakest point in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructions. Numerous interference screws and combination screw and sheath devices are available for soft tissue fixation, and a biomechanical comparison of these devices is necessary. HYPOTHESIS Combination screw and sheath devices would(More)
The consequence of tunnel widening after ACL reconstructions is foremost of importance in case of revision surgery. Tunnel expansion leads to bone loss close to the joint, and additional surgery with bone grafting prior to revision surgery might be necessary. The purpose of the study was to measure widening of the tunnels in single-bundle (SB) and(More)
BACKGROUND Revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction requires a precise evaluation of previous tunnel locations and diameters. Enlargement of the tunnels, despite not usually affecting primary reconstruction outcomes, plays an important role in revision ACL management. Three dimensional (3D) computed tomography (CT) models are reported to be(More) The online version of this article can be found at: DOI: 10.1177/0363546512474968 2013 41: 841 originally published online February 12, 2013 Am J Sports Med Coen A.

BACKGROUND Double-bundle anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has demonstrated improved biomechanical properties and moderately better objective outcomes compared with single-bundle reconstructions. This could make an impact on the rerupture rate and reduce the risk of revisions in patients undergoing double-bundle ACL reconstruction compared(More)
