ACL reconstruction with synthetic graft ligament: advantages, disvantages, limits

Abstract

Synthetic ligaments must have a good elongation, torsion and abrasion resistance and be biocompatible, that is, chemically inert. They should be as similar as possible to natural ligaments. The effective benefits in their use for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction are represented by a reduction in iatrogenic damage, faster recovery times, less pain and faster surgical technique. The disadvantages and limits are represented by the cost and the impossibility to define if mechanical failure may occur in the future as no long-term studies with a long follow-up have been reported in the literature yet.
