BACKGROUND The autograft preparation process for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction has a potential for graft contamination. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the possibility of contamination of the bone-patellar tendon-bone and hamstring tendon autograft during preparation for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. METHODS A primary isolated reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament with use of bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft (thirty patients) and hamstring… CONTINUE READING
