The use of implants for conventional anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft fixation has been associated with several problems including graft injury, implant osteolysis, implant migration and soft tissue irritation. Implantless ACL surgery offers additional benefits involving lower cost, improved graft incorporation and ease of revision surgery. The investigators aimed to compare the functional outcome of implantless bone-patellar tendon autograft using press-fit fixation technique and hamstring autografts using implant.
Purpose: The use of implants for conventional anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft fixation has been associated with several problems including graft injury, implant osteolysis, implant migration and soft tissue irritation. Implantless ACL surgery offers additional benefits involving lower cost, improved graft incorporation and ease of revision surgery. The investigators aimed to compare the functional outcome of implantless bone-patellar tendon autograft using press-fit fixation technique and hamstring autografts using implant.
Materials and Methods: A prospective cohort study design was used. Between March 2013 and March 2014, 12 patients underwent implantless ACL reconstruction using press-fit femoral technique, while 24 patients underwent implant ACL reconstruction. Objective functional outcome were measured using rolimeter, and subjective functional outcome were measured according to IKDC, Tegner-Lysholm and KOOS.

Hypothesis 1: There is less tunnel-widening with bone–patella tendon–bone graft compared with the hamstring graft when the same fixation method is used. Tunnel widening is greater wit...

A Comparison of Quadriceps Tendon Autograft With Bone-Patellar Tendon-Bone Autograft and Hamstring Tendon Autograft for Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Systematic Review and Quantitative Synthesis.
There is growing enthusiasm for the increased use of quadriceps tendon (QT) autograft for primary anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). The purpose of this analysis was to synthesize and q...
A peroneus longus tendon autograft is used in many orthopaedic procedures and it is biomechanically comparable to a hamstring tendon autograft. Despite its potential, there are few studies that have e...
In ACL Reconstruction with Patellar Tendon Autograft, Adductor Canal Nerve Blockade Reduced Quadriceps Function Deficits Compared with Femoral Nerve Blockade, but Did Not Differ for Postoperative Pain.
We describe a new simple reconstruction for neglected chronic ruptures of patellar tendon using ipsilateral hamstrings tendon autograft. This has been validated in thirteen patients with mean follow u...
A limitation in the use of calcium phosphate (CaP) is that in its raw form, it comprises blocks or granules, which are limited in their utility for orthopedic surgery and a number of commercial bone g...
Fixation of the ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT, during surgical reconstruction, by the use of a bone- patellar tendon autograft.
A band of fibrous tissue that attaches the apex of the PATELLA to the lower part of the tubercle of the TIBIA. The ligament is actually the caudal continuation of the common tendon of the QUADRICEPS FEMORIS. The patella is embedded in that tendon. As such, the patellar ligament can be thought of as connecting the quadriceps femoris tendon to the tibia, and therefore it is sometimes called the patellar tendon.
Nodular bones which lie within a tendon and slide over another bony surface. The kneecap (see PATELLA) is a sesamoid bone.
