BACKGROUND Fixation strength of metal and bioabsorbable interference screws has not been evaluated while varying the anterior cruciate ligament graft tension angle. HYPOTHESIS There is no difference in fixation strength between 2 types of interference screws for anterior cruciate ligament graft fixation while the graft tension angle is varied relative to the femoral tunnel. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Forty-eight anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions were… CONTINUE READING
