BACKGROUND A variety of fixation devices are available for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Bioabsorbable screws allow imaging postoperatively without image artefact, as with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). There is also the perceived benefit of screw resorption and subsequent host tunnel bone ingrowth. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS The purpose of this study was to document the natural history of poly L-lactic acid (PLLA) bioabsorbable interference screws. Manufacturers claimed that… CONTINUE READING
