BACKGROUND The choice of graft material for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction is believed to play a major role in outcome, but most comparisons of graft choice have not been well controlled. HYPOTHESIS The choice of graft material (patellar tendon or hamstring tendon) does affect clinical outcome after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. STUDY DESIGN Prospective, nonrandomized clinical trial. METHODS Two groups of 90 patients each were followed for a minimum of 5 years… CONTINUE READING
