BACKGROUND There are still controversies about graft selection for primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, especially with respect to knee stability and functional outcome. HYPOTHESIS Biodegradable interference screw fixation of hamstring tendon grafts provides clinical results similar to those achieved with identical fixation of bone-patellar tendon-bone grafts. STUDY DESIGN Cohort study; Level of evidence, 2. METHODS In 1996 and 1997, primary isolated anterior cruciate… CONTINUE READING
