The purpose of the study was to compare the hamstring and quadriceps isokinetic results 6 months postoperatively in patients having patellar tendon or hamstring anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. The study group was comprised of 106 randomly selected patients who had ACL reconstruction with either autogenous patellar tendon (PT), semitendinosus (ST), or semitendinosus and gracilis (ST/G). Hamstring and quadriceps isokinetic strength were assessed at 180 degrees/sec and 300 degrees… CONTINUE READING
