Femoral Aperture Fixation Improves Anterior Cruciate Ligament Graft Function When Added to Cortical Suspensory Fixation: An In Vivo Computer Navigation Study
BACKGROUND Recommendations for bone tunnel placement during anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction have become more precise. However, these recommendations differ neither with the choice of graft nor with the method of fixation used. The influence of the method of femoral fixation used on the biomechanical function of a soft tissue ACL graft remains unknown. HYPOTHESIS Our null hypothesis was that adding femoral aperture fixation to femoral cortical fixation, using the same bone...[Show more]
