Reconstruction of the ACL using hamstring tendons has recently attained increasing interest. The fixation using endobuttons is widest spread. Disadvantages of this fixation away from the point of insertion are enlargement of the tunnel, creeping near the tendon-tape-transition with a giving in of the tendon construct and a permanent elongation. This is also known as Bungee effect. Fixations close to the insertion are therefore being technically applied successfully, e.g. Fixation using interference screws and suspension of loops using transverse rods (Transfix). The disadvantages of these techniques include: 1. They are expensive, 2. There are problems with revisions and 3. They are complicated and time consuming. As an alternative solution, a technique has been developed that should have 3 paramount properties like fixation close to point of insertion, avoidance of implants and simple preparation of the graft. This called press fit technique. This study compared the two technique of hamstring auto graft fixation with the use of a press-fit bone plug vs. interference screws.
