40 patients requiring anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction were randomized to undergo the procedure using either serial dilation (SD) or conventional extraction drilling (ED) of the tibial tunnel. The purpose was to compare the two techniques with respect to graft migration and knee laxity over 24 weeks, assessed using radiostereometric analysis (RSA) and a TELOS stress device. Results ...
