20 patients scheduled for a primary reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament with a hamstring tendon graft were randomized to the technique of tibial end fixation with either a press fit conical bone cylinder or an interference screw fixation. The press-fit bone plug significantly surpassed the bioresorbable interference screw fixation in decreasing the proximal tibial bone tunnel enlargem...
