PURPOSE Injury to the sartorial (terminal) branch of the saphenous nerve (SBSN) has received little attention in the literature, despite its anatomic proximity to the hamstring tendons during autogenous harvesting. This study aims to define the prevalence of saphenous nerve injury after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with autogenous hamstrings and define clinically relevant anatomy that may contribute to nerve injury. METHODS Surveys regarding the presence and duration of… CONTINUE READING
