New Scientific Article Published on GraftLink ACL Reconstruction

GraftLinkA recent study published in the Journal of Knee Surgery authored by surgeons at the Mayo Clinic describes the latest advances in All-Inside ACL Reconstruction and describes their preferred GraftLink technique and surgical outcomes. According to the authors, the GraftLink technique may provide advantages of gracilis preservation, less bone removal, less post-operative pain and improved cosmesis. Clinical data on 95 patients at a minimum of six months (mean 22.4 months, range 7.8-35.3 months) showed knee stability measures, knee strength and complication rates in line with standard techniques.
