Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with hamstring graft (HG) is a commonly performed procedure. Despite the type of reconstruction chosen, the detached HG undergoes a remodeling process known as ligamentization. In order to shorten the ligamentization process, the maintenance of HG tibial insertion, aimed to spare the tendons vascular supply, has been postulated. The aim of this paper is to report the results of a prospective randomized study comparing clinical and MRI results between two different ACL reconstructive procedures with and without HG tibial insertion preservation.

Abstract

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with hamstring graft (HG) is a commonly performed procedure. Despite the type of reconstruction chosen, the detached HG undergoes a remodeling process known as ligamentization. In order to shorten the ligamentization process, the maintenance of HG tibial insertion, aimed to spare the tendons vascular supply, has been postulated. The aim of this paper is to report the results of a prospective randomized study comparing clinical and MRI results between two different ACL reconstructive procedures with and without HG tibial insertion preservation.
