Official Title

The Effect of Bone-void Filler on Anterior Knee Pain Following ACL Reconstruction With Bone-Patellar Tendon Bone Autograft

Brief Summary

      One of the common complaints after ACLR with BPTB autograft anterior knee pain. It is thought
      that this may be due to harvesting the patellar tendon for graft use. Specifically, this may
      be due to the bone defect that is left after graft harvesting. There is currently no
      consensus on a gold standard for treating the bone defect with surgeons using multiple
      commercially available bone void fillers as well as autologous bone graft in standard

      The purpose of the proposed study is to evaluate the effect bone-void filler on anterior knee
      pain following ACL reconstruction BPTB autograft.
