BACKGROUND Graft healing after soft tissue anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction requires rigid fixation to allow for soft tissue healing. Cortical suspension devices for femoral fixation should be biomechanically tested under high loads representative of early rehabilitation to evaluate whether they provide sufficient fixation. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS To biomechanically compare current fixed-loop and adjustable-loop cortical suspension devices for soft tissue femoral fixation under high… CONTINUE READING
