Han et al. One of the more important benchmarks in recovery is the twelve weeks post-surgery period. However, advancements in screening and sterilization make this risk exceedingly small. Of the questionnaires that were returned, Furthermore, Removal of this tendon, even partial, may alter the biomechanics of the extensor mechanism, leading to pathological conditions such as patellar instability and maltracking 1.
Does the graft source really matter in the outcome of patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction? Synthetic tissue for ACL reconstruction has also been developed, but little data exists on its strength and reliability. Recently, a decision analysis study showed that, reconstruction with hamstrings is low cost and offers high reliability Beasley et al.
In addition to flexion deficit and muscle weaknesses, it also results in reduced stability 47 The abnormal bone movement can also damage the tissue, this damage can lead to osteoarthritis. Some studies have failed to show any difference in stability measures between the 2 types of reconstructions.
Reconstructions with HT graft were characterized by a lower incidence of complications.
In the past, the hamstring tendon HT graft was poorly considered because used in a single-strand or double-strand fashion 10 Biomechanical studies showed that quadrupled HT graft offered greater strength and the same stiffness as the patellar tendon
