Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Due to artificial ligament has chronic fatigue, more and more people use allograft for the reconstruction of anterior and the posterior cruciate ligament injury.

OBJECTIVE:

To compare the curative effect after arthroscopic reconstruction of single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament using autologous hamstring grafts and allogeneic anterior tibial muscle tendon grafts.

METHODS:

Cases of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction which using single-bundle autologous hamstring grafts and allogeneic anterior tibial muscle tendon grafts under arthroscopic with 1 year follow-up were collected. Totally 28 cases were used autologous hamstring grafts for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, and 18 cases were used anterior tibial muscle tendon allograft for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The fixation of each reconstructed anterior cruciate ligament was done by femoral EndoButton and tibial biodegradable interference screw. Using a brace to fix the troubled knee and having the physical training of the troubled knee lately and progressively.

RESULTS AND CONCLUSION:

All the 46 cases were followed up for six months after reconstruction. Lysholm score of the autologous tendon group was lower than that of the allogeneic tendon group (P > 0.05). There was no significant difference between the two groups of Lysholm score after six months postoperatively. Lysholm score of the two groups after 6 months and a year construction postoperative showed significant difference as compared with preoperation (P < 0.05). There was significant difference of the Lysholm score after reconstruction in six months follow-up and in one year follow-up showing a statistic significance (P< 0.05). The curative effect of anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using autologous hamstring grafts and allogeneic anterior tibial muscle tendon grafts is equally.
