Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are the most common complete ligamentous injury to the knee. The optimal graft should be able to reproduce the anatomy and biomechanics of the ACL, be incorporated rapidly with strong initial fixation, and cause low graft-site morbidity. This article reviews the literature comparing the clinical outcomes following allograft and autograft ACL reconstruction and examines current issues regarding graft choice.
Iliac crest allograft glenoid reconstruction for recurrent anterior shoulder instability in athletes: Surgical technique and results
Iliac crest allograft glenoid reconstruction for recurrent anterior shoulder instability in athletes: Surgical technique and resultsMascarenhas R, Raleigh E, McRae S, Leiter J, Saltzman B, MacDonald PB 20 May 2015

Performing a labral repair alone in patients with recurrent anterior instability and a large glenoid defect has led to poor outcomes. We present a technique involving the use of the iliac crest allograft inserted into the glenoid defect in athletes with recurrent anterior shoulder instability and large bony defects of the glenoid (>25% of glenoid diameter). All athletes with recurrent anterior shoulder instability and a large glenoid defect that underwent open anterior shoulder stabilization and glenoid reconstruction with the iliac crest allograft were followed over a 4-year period.Download abstract

This study was conducted to evaluate case series outcomes of a new tibial fixation technique using a free tendon graft during posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) reconstruction which is less affected by tibial metaphysis bone density.
