Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is one of the most common orthopedic procedures performed worldwide. It is considered the standard of care for young active patients who wish to return to sport practice after ACL injury[1]. Despite the lack of clear evidence of its ability to reduce the onset and progression of knee osteoarthritis (OA), ACL reconstruction is expected to prevent further meniscal and cartilage lesions that could occur in the ACL-deficient knee[2,3]. Usually, ACL reconstruction is performed arthroscopically (occasionally combined with extra-articular plasty/augmentation) using autologous graft such as Gracilis and Semitendinosus tendons (HS), bone-patellar tendon bone (BPTB), and Quadriceps Tendon (QT), or allogenic grafts such as BPTB, Achilles Tendon, and Posterior or Anterior Tibialis tendons.
