Comparison of the results of bioabsorbable interference screws and posts for hamstring graft distal fixation in ACL reconstructions are presented. The results of 20 patients with bioabsorbable screws were compared to 22 patients with posts. The assessement was based on Lysholm-Gillquist and Marshall scores and the KT-1000 device. In the study group the points gained were 38.9 in the Lysholm-Gillquist and 12.89 in the Marshall scale. The average KT-1000 difference was 2.46 mm. In the control… CONTINUE READING
