PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to clarify the difference in remodeling between allografts and autografts in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. METHODS We examined 24 knees with bone-patellar tendon-bone allografts and 20 knees with central-third bone-patellar tendon-bone autografts. Surgical patients from January 1997 to December 2002 were included in the study, and more than 1 year had passed since surgery. The mean postoperative follow-up was 24.0 months in the allograft… CONTINUE READING
