The aim of the study was to compare the results 2 years after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using a hamstring tendon (HT) autograft in patients operated within 5 months after the injury (Group A) and patients operated more than 24 months after the injury (Group B). Sixty-one patients (27 women, 34 men), with a unilateral ACL rupture, underwent reconstructive surgery using semitendinosus (ST) or semitendinosus and gracilis (ST/G) autografts. Thirty patients (Group A) were… CONTINUE READING
