OBJECTIVES To analyze ligamentous stability and isokinetic strength of knee extensor and flexor muscles after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using 2 different autografts with identical fixation. DESIGN This study implements a comparative case series design. SETTING Schulthess Clinic, Switzerland. PATIENTS A total of 153 consecutive patients (n = 87 bone-patellar tendon-bone [BPTB]/66 quadruple semitendinosus/gracilis tendons [QSGT] patients) who underwent BPTB and QSGT surgery… CONTINUE READING
