Peroneus Longus Tendon Autograft for Primary Arthroscopic Reconstruction of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament

SUMMARY Purpose. Peroneus longus tendon graft is not a popular first choice for ACL reconstruction. However, newer literature has shown good outcomes with its use. This study compares functional outcome and donor site morbidity of peroneus longus with hamstring tendon autograft to assess if it can be considered as one of the first choices for ACLR. Methods.

Bone-patellar Tendon-bone Versus Four Strands Hamstring Grafts for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

SUMMARY Introduction. The goal of the present meta-analysis was to compare bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) versus four-strands hamstring tendon (4SHT) autografts for primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. Methods. The present meta-analysis was conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines. The literature search was performed in July 2019. All the randomized clinical trials comparing BPTB versus 4SHT … Continued
