BACKGROUND The choice of graft material for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction remains controversial. Despite the need for well-controlled, long-term outcome studies comparing patellar tendon with hamstring grafting, few studies have followed results for more than 5 years. HYPOTHESIS Graft source will not affect outcome 6 years after reconstruction. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 2. METHODS Sixty-two patients with anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and 18… CONTINUE READING
