ACL Reconstruction Using Achilles Allograft

The anterior cruciate ligament or ACL is a ligament in the knee joint that is often injured during sports, such as soccer and football. This can lead to knee pain and disability and may require surgery to regain optimal knee function. An Achilles tendon obtained from a deceased donor has successfully been used as a graft to reconstruct the ACL ligament. Using the Achilles tendon allograft avoids the need of obtaining a graft from the patient’s own body and provides sufficient stability. It is ideal for those who wish to return to athletic activity.
