Abstract

Use of a fresh-frozen, nonirradiated allograft for primary reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament is a successful procedure both subjectively and functionally for restoring stability in patients selected for allograft reconstruction. In the patients selected for this surgical procedure, clinical, arthrometric stability testing, and subjective satisfaction were comparable to our previously published cohort studies using patellar tendon autograft at similar postoperative follow-up.
