Since QT autograft has mostly been reserved for revision surgeries in the past, due to a technically challenging open harvesting procedure with a high learning curve and less cosmetically attractive scaring, Fink et al. had a goal to develop a minimally invasive, less anatomically disruptive and at the same time easily reproducible technique for QT harvest.
