Prediction of the Graft Size of 4-Stranded Semitendinosus Tendon and 4-Stranded Gracilis Tendon for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: A Chinese Han Patient Study
The American Journal of Sports Medicine, 05/04/2012Xie G et al.
Several preoperative anthropometric measurements showed correlation with the length of the ST and GT and diameter of 4–stranded semitendinosus (ST) and gracilis tendon (GT) grafts. The current data may provide surgeons with important preoperative information about size of ST and GT grafts and would be useful for patient counseling and alternative graft source planning.
