Serial dilation versus extraction drilling in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a biomechanical study

Abstract

The hamstring tendon graft has become increasingly popular in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction because of low donor-site morbidity. However, the tibial fixation is considered difficult, mainly because of low tibial mineral bone density. Therefore, we tested whether preparation of the tibial tunnel with compaction by serial dilation provided a… (More)
