PURPOSE To investigate the influence of harvesting semitendinosus and gracilis tendons on the rotational muscle strength of the limb after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. TYPE OF STUDY Prospective study. METHODS We performed a prospective study of 62 consecutive (34 male, 28 female) patients with ACL reconstructions using the semitendinosus and gracilis tendons. The mean age at surgery was 20.8 years. The semitendinosus tendon was harvested in 32 patients (ST group), and… CONTINUE READING
