Real-time elastography of patellar tendon in patients with auto-graft bone–tendon–bone anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction

Abstract

Patellar tendon donor site has been previously evaluated in patients with auto-graft bone–tendon–bone (BTB) anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using either magnetic resonance imaging or B mode ultrasound. However, donor site patellar tendon strain ratio—reflecting structural features—has not been studied with US elastography. Here, we ascertain… (More)
