Autograft and Leeds-Keio reconstructions of the ovine anterior cruciate ligament.
Despite acceptable clinical performance and adequate mechanical properties up to one year postimplantation, neither reconstruction approached the clinical or mechanical performance of the normal anterior cruciate ligament in the ovine model.

ACL reconstruction with LARS artificial ligament used in patients with the ACL stump preserved in the acute and chronic phases has a very good outcome at mean of 50 months' follow-up, and knee stability was significantly improved compared with preoperative data.
Four-strand hamstring tendon autograft versus LARS artificial ligament for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction
It is suggested that four years after ACL reconstruction using a LARS ligament or 4SHG dramatically improves the function outcome, while the patients in the LARS group displayed a higher knee stability than those in the 4SHg group.

The history of the use of prosthetics with respect to ACL reconstruction grafts including Carbon Fibre, Gore-Tex and Dacron prosthetics as well as the Leeds-Keio Artificial Ligament and the Kennedy LIGament Augmentation Device (LAD) are reviewed.
Graft Fixation Alternatives in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
Current methods available for graft fixation in anterior cruciate ligament surgery are reviewed and the "best" fixation technique depends upon several factors including graft choice and surgeon comfort.
A new generation of artificial ligaments in reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament. Two-year follow-up of a randomised trial.
A randomised clinical trial comparing two methods of reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament in patients with chronic instability suggests that at follow-up at 24 months the LARS ligament seems to be a satisfactory treatment option, especially when an early return to high levels of activity is demanded.
10-16 year results of Leeds-Keio anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
All post-operative knees had radiographic signs of degenerative change compared with a rate of 39% in the contralateral knees, and no correlation could be shown between rupture, increased laxity and poor function.
Arthroscopic "second look" at the GORE-TEX ligament
The intact GORE-TEX ligament is an inert substance and does not cause significant joint reaction, and impingement in the intercondylar notch is the most common cause of graft failure.
Synthetic grafts for anterior cruciate ligament rupture: 19-year outcome study.
Although in theory well-conceived, studies have yet to substantiate the function of these augmentation devices or to show clinical better results than those achieved with isolated autograft or allograft ACL substitutes.
A model of soft-tissue graft anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction in sheep
The flexor tendon is suitable, and sheep appear to be an appropriate animal model for soft-tissue graft ACL reconstruction, and they tolerate the graft harvest well and quickly return to full weight-bearing and physiological movement.
