Read this interesting new study on comparison between QT and Hamstring autografts in ACL-R in terms of return to sports published by the German knee society in KSSTA journal
In this study the authors from the Committee for knee ligament injuries of the German knee society (Die Deutsche Kniegesellschaft- DKG) aimed to determine potential quadriceps versus hamstring tendon autograft differences in terms of neuromuscular function and return to sport (RTS)-success following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
The authors found reported non-significant and marginal between-graft differences in the functional outcomes and concluded that the selection of either one of these graft option must be undertaken for each patient individually.
