The study evaluates the biomechanical properties of single-strand and single-loop tibialis (anterior and posterior) tendon allografts. A comparison was made with bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) allografts. Sixty-four tendon allografts were evaluated in this study. Sixteen of these were single-strand tibialis anterior (TA) and 16 single-strand tibialis posterior (TP) tendons. Sixteen single-loop TA and TP tendons were also tested. The fourth group was composed of 16 BPTB allografts. The… CONTINUE READING
