The October 2007 edition of Clinics in Sports Medicine will focus on anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction graft selection and graft fixation. The twelve chapters will be written by some of the world's foremost experts on ACL reconstruction. The topics will specifically include the use of: ipsilateral and contralateral patella tendon autograft, hamstring autograft, quadriceps tendon autograft, and freeze-dried patella tendon allograft. Included will be a chapter on the clinical results of autograft and allograft and a section on allograft safety for ACL reconstruction. In addition, there will be a special chapter on anatomic double bundle ACL reconstruction. Finally, the topics of biomechanics of graft fixation, comparison of aperture and peripheral fixation, and the biology of graft healing in ACL reconstruction will be included. This special edition of Clinics will include some of the most interesting and debated topics associated with ACL reconstruction today.
