Tendon-bone incorporation of a tendon graft within the bone tunnel is a major concern when using tendon graft for ligament reconstruction. Periosteum consists of multipotent mesodermal cells to form all varieties of connective tissue, including osteogenic and chondrogenic tissues. From our histologic and biomechanical studies in animals, a superior healing process and stronger healing strength can be achieved when periosteum is sutured onto the tendon inserted within a bone tunnel. We applied… CONTINUE READING
