The article offers information on the long-term follow-up study on patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) who were subject to ACL reconstruction with the use of an ipsilateral ST graft. The procedure involves EndoButton on the femoral side to compare semitendinosus (ST) grafts with bone-patellar tendon-bone (BPTB). Assessments include Tegner activity level score, Lysholm score, and International Knee Documentation Committee score. The results show that BPTB graft is similar to ST graft.
