The purposes of this study are to confirm factors that affect the diameter of hamstring tendon autograft and to compare failure rates between the factors after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. A total of 296 patients that underwent reconstruction using hamstring tendon autograft at our clinics for ACL injury between September 2005 and June 2008 were enrolled for this study. The diameters of gracilis and semitendinosus tendons (harvested from the affected knee) and four-strand… CONTINUE READING
