A biomechanical comparison of 2 femoral fixation techniques for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in skeletally immature patients: over-the-top fixation versus transphyseal technique.

Abstract

PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare knee kinematics and in situ forces of the graft between 2 femoral fixation techniques of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction: the over-the-top (OTT) fixation and transphyseal (TP) techniques. METHODS ACL reconstruction in skeletally immature patients is a challenging procedure. Regarding the… (More)
