Abstract

This study aimed to find answers to the following questions: (1) Is it possible to determine and measure the space between the top of the graft and entrance of implant tunnel by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)? (2) Is there any correlation between the hole above the graft in femoral tunnel and the femoral tunnel widening? (3) Does the tunnel widening affect clinical outcomes? (4) Are clinical and radiological outcomes of Toggle Loc with Zip Loop implant-loop design better than Endobutton CL?
