  • Background A number of different femoral anterior cruciate ligament fixation techniques are currently in use. Slippage of the graft caused by excessive early loading or aggressive rehabilitation may negate benefits of surgery and result in a knee with undesirable laxity. Hypothesis Anterior cruciate ligament femoral graft slippage varies by fixation technique and amount of cyclic loading. Study Design Controlled laboratory study. Methods Graft slippage in 5 different soft tissue anterior… CONTINUE READING
