Hamstring tendon using quadrupled semitendinosus and gracilis autografts is a well-established technique for ACL reconstruction. However, several methods have been used for tibial fixation of the tendon graft. The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical characteristics of quadrupled hamstring graft tibial fixation using three different fixation methods. Nine matched pairs (18 specimens) of cadaver tibias were divided into three groups of six specimens. The first group was fixed… CONTINUE READING
