Isometric positioning of the ACL graft or prosthesis is an important consideration in successful reconstruction of the ACL-deficient knee. This study documented the relationship between graft placement and intraarticular graft length changes and graft tension changes during knee passive range of motion. Fifteen fresh cadaveric knees were mounted in stabilizing rigs. The ACL was identified and cut in each specimen. Intraarticular reconstruction was then performed using a 6 mm polypropylene braid… CONTINUE READING
