    This article presents several facts, related to bones. More than half of the total bones of the body are found in the hands and feet. The largest bone in the human body is the femur. The strongest bone in the human body is the mandible or jaw bone. Bones are living organs that have blood vessels...

    The single-incision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction evidently has its shortcomings. In an attempt to improve the biomechanical but also the biological state of the knees after an ACL-reconstruction, double, even triple-bundle reconstructions have been popularised recently. As a...
