Femoral Cortical Fixation Devices for ACL Reconstructions

What is it about?

This article reviews the different types of cortical fixation devices in the femur for ACL reconstruction grafts.

Why is it important?

This article is important because it provides a comprehensive analysis of the different types of cortical fixation devices available for ACL reconstructions. It reviews some of the newer articles which have demonstrated that fixed-length devices have less loosening than the self-tightening devices.
