The length and cross-sectional area of human semitendinosus and gracilis tendons were measured in both single- and multi-strand configurations for the purpose of anterior cruciate ligament graft preparation. The average lengths of the semitendinosus and the gracilis tendons were 235±20 mm (mean±SD) and 200±17 mm, respectively. The cross-sectional area of a doubled semitendinosus tendon (two strands) was significantly less than that of a 10-mm-wide patellar tendon graft (P<0.001). The cross… CONTINUE READING
