Abstract

Graft strength is only one of the factors influencing anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft choice. However, it has a direct bearing on ultimate stability, which is the goal of ACL. The relative strengths of potential ACL grafts are often not clearly appreciated. It is the purpose of this chapter to present the available data on the relative strengths of tendons that can be used as ACL reconstructive grafts.
