Is Quadriceps Tendon Bone Autograft (QTB) a Better Graft than Bone Patellar Tendon Bone Autograft (BPTB) for ACL Reconstruction? - A Randomized Single Blinded Study

Dr Naga Rama Krishna Naram | Dr Sachin Kumar | Dr Puneet Prakash


Abstract: Though ACL tear is one of the extensively studied sports injuries, there are no definitive guidelines in its management. There is debate on the choice of graft selection, method of fixation and technique used for reconstruction rather than the need for a surgery. This single blinded study compared the outcome of ACL reconstruction with autologous Bone Patellar Tendon Bone Graft (BPTB) and an autologous Quadriceps Tendon Bone (QTB) graft, and temporal variation of the results over a period of 12 months. The results of this study were comparable with similar international studies. Functional results were comparable between BPTB and QTB groups, but QTB group had less graft site morbidity.
