Stiffness of Surrounding Soft Tissue of the Donor Site in Patients with Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Using Bone-Patellar Tendon-Bone Autograft

SUMMARY Introduction. While many studies focus on the restoration of muscle strength in the mid-term after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) with bone-patellar tendon-bone (BTB) autograft, it is not known whether the mechanical properties of the donor site and surrounding soft tissue are restored. The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanical properties of the donor site … Continued
