Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with hamstring tendon autografts versus peroneus longus tendon autografts in isolated Anterior Cruciate ligament injury

Abstract
Objective: To compare the outcome and donor-site morbidity between peroneus longus tendon (PLT) and hamstring tendon in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.
Methodology: A total of 80 cases aged 15-40 years undergoing single-bundle ACL reconstruction from January 2019 to December 2020 were enrolled. All were randomly assigned to either hamstring tendon group or PLT group. Functional scoring as “International Knee Documentation Committee (IKDC)”, “Modified Cincinnati” and “Lysholm scores” were noted prior to surgery and at the end of follow-up period of 9-months after surgery. Donor-site morbidity was also assessed.
Results: Out of 80 cases, there were 66 (82.5%) were male. Mean age in hamstring group was 27.4+9.1 versus 25.8+8.6 years in PLT group (p=0.4214). Thigh circumference between operated and sound leg was significantly high in hamstring group (p<0.0001). None of the patient in PLT group had any other donor-site morbidity while 6 (16.7%) patients in hamstring group were found to have anterior kneeling pain.
Conclusion: Peroneus longus as graft choice in isolated ACL injuries needs further encouragement, as it was found to have less donor-site related morbidities especially among individuals who commonly kneel during their daily activities.

Key words: Donor-site morbidity, peroneus longus tendon, anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
