90 patients undergoing an anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) with either a bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB) or hamstring (HS) autograft were randomized to receive the graft with high tension (AP laxity of knee over-constrained by 2mm) or low tension (normal tension). Outcomes of interest included tibial tunnel diameter and patient reported outcomes (KOOS; SF-12 v2 health questionnair...
