Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using a composite collagenous prosthesis. A biomechanical and histologic study in rabbits.

Abstract

We evaluated a prototype composite collagenous anterior cruciate ligament replacement device designed to possess the advantages of biological grafts and synthetic materials. Collagenous anterior cruciate ligament prostheses were made by embedding 225 reconstituted type I collagen fibers in a type I collagen matrix, and placing polymethylmethacrylate bone… (More)
