Summary of "Allograft Augmentation of Hamstring Anterior Cruciate Ligament Autografts Is Associated With Increased Graft Failure in Children and Adolescents."

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction in adolescents is commonly performed with hamstring tendon autografts. Small graft diameter is one risk factor for graft failure and options to upsize the autologous hamstring graft include allograft augmentation and tripling one or both of the hamstring tendons.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Rebuilding of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT to restore functional stability of the knee. AUTOGRAFTING or ALLOGRAFTING of tissues is often used.

Sprain or tear injuries to the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT of the knee.

A strong ligament of the knee that originates from the posteromedial portion of the lateral condyle of the femur, passes anteriorly and inferiorly between the condyles, and attaches to the depression in front of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia.
