          Abstract

          Interference fit fixation of soft-tissue grafts has recently raised strong interest because it allows for anatomic graft fixation that may increase knee stability and graft isometry. Although clinical data show promising results, no data exist on how tendon healing progresses using this fixation. The purpose of the present study was to investigate anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction biomechanically using direct tendon-to-bone interference fit fixation with biodegradable interference screws in a sheep model.
