PURPOSE The aim of this study was to evaluate the mechanical properties of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using the medial portal technique with cortical fixation and hybrid fixation after penetration of the lateral cortex by use of different drill sizes. METHODS In this biomechanical study a porcine in vitro model was used. The testing… CONTINUE READING
