The article reports on the study on how to evaluate anterior cruciate ligaments reconstruction with the use of autologous quadriceps tendon autographs. It is inferred that quadriceps tendon has equivalent ultimate load to failure compared to patellar tendon. In addition, quadriceps tendon is composed of several individual layers, which are separated to form two stands if the whole layer is harvested. It also considered as essential for quadriceps muscle strength.

    Unrestricted participation in sports activities and return to the pre-injury level is often reported as an indicator of the success of ACL reconstruction. The athletes' choice not to return to their pre-injury level may depend on the knee function, but some times, social reasons or psychological...
