Purpose To evaluate femoral soft tissue fixation for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. Hypothesis Femoral fixation devices have different ultimate strengths and slippage under cyclic loading. Study Design Controlled laboratory study. Methods Thirty-three porcine femora were used to study interference screw (9), Endobutton (8), Rigidfix cross-pin (8), and Bio-Transfix cross-pin (8) fixation methods. Fixation slippage was evaluated under cyclical load from 50 N to 250 N using a materials… Expand
