Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A free graft taken from the patellar tendon with a proximal and distal bone plug is used for the treatment of lesions of the anterior cruciate ligament; the authors emphasize the graft harvest procedure, the preparation of the graft, and its fixation, and specify that for the latter they prefer to anchor the traction wires of the neoligament to a proximal and a distal cortical screw.
