BACKGROUND The autograft of choice for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction remains controversial. The quadriceps tendon is the least utilized and least studied of the potential autograft options. PURPOSE To determine if the quadriceps tendon has the anatomic characteristics to produce a graft whose length and volume are adequate, reproducible, and predictable when compared with the other commonly used autografts. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional study; Level of evidence, 3… CONTINUE READING
