PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare postoperative anterior knee pain, knee stability, and functional scores of an autogenous bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) graft and a quadriceps tendon-bone (QTB) graft. METHODS A total of 48 patients--27 who had anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction by use of an autogenous BPTB graft and 21 who had ACL reconstruction by use of a QTB graft--were assessed at a minimum follow-up of 24 months after surgery. An accelerated… CONTINUE READING
