The objective of this investigation was to study the residual laxity and slippage in suspensory modality of the tibial fixation methods of soft tissue graft (ACL) using suture disc and interference screw by comparing the results of tensile and fatigue tests.
5 cm on each side using double folded graft for fixation.
Specimens were divided into two groups (8 for each group), according to the fixation technique, as group A and group B.
The fixation complex was preconditioned before the actual testing to remove any wraping of the graft.
Results of load-to-failure (on A1 specimen) series for specimen of group A--Suture disc fixation are as follows.
