Leong Yung Chin | Philip Lew Wei Sheng | Chew Jun Jie | Zulkifli bin Hassan


Abstract: Introduction: Previous studies demonstrated that factors such as gender and height correlate with the diameter of hamstring autograft. We conducted this study to get local data on hamstring graft length, size and factors determined it. Material and Methods: We included 32 patients underwent primary ACL reconstruction using hamstring autograft from January 2017 to November 2020. We recorded gracilis and semitendinosus graft length, graft size, and its associated factors. Result: The average length for semitendinosus and gracilis tendon were 285.9±28.95mm and 263.8±27.33mm. The mean graft diameter was 8.8±0.67mm. Height had significant correlation with gracilis length (r=0.466) and graft size (r=0.568). Conclusion: The average hamstring graft sizewas 8.8±0.67mm. Height is the strongest correlating factor.
