The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a complex structure within the knee joint that plays an important role in maintaining knee stability. As levels of sports participation have increased, injuries such as tears to the ACL have become commonplace. The current surgical gold standard is the reconstruction of the torn ACL with a tendon graft, but this is a difficult and technically challenging procedure. The aim of Tan Nguyen’s research is to improve patient outcomes by optimizing two important variables in the reconstruction technique and developing a bio-enhanced end-to-end technique to repair the ACL.
