PurposeThe purpose of the study was to evaluate the influence of synovial coverage of the remnant on clinical outcomes and graft healing in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.MethodsSeventy-five patients who underwent second-look arthroscopy after a single-bundle ACL reconstruction using autologous quadriceps tendon graft were included. The patients were divided into two groups according to whether the remnant was preserved (group P, n = 42) or sacrificed (group S, n = 33). Group P… CONTINUE READING
