BACKGROUND The aim of the study was to compare the results after arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using central-third bone-patellar tendon-bone (BTB) autografts and triple/quadruple semitendinosus (ST) autografts. HYPOTHESIS In the long-term, ACL reconstruction using BTB autografts will render more donor-site problems than ST autografts. STUDY DESIGN Randomized controlled trial; Level of evidence, 1. METHODS A randomized series of 71 patients (22 women and 49… CONTINUE READING
