Lateral extra-articular tenodesis (LET) is being performed more frequently with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR) to decrease graft failure rates. The posterior tibial slope (PTS) affects ACL graft failure rates. The effect of ACLR + LET on tibial motion and graft forces with increasing PTS has not been elucidated.
In conclusion, increased PTS was confirmed to increase graft forces linearly. Although ACLR + LET reduced graft force compared with ACLR alone, slope reduction had a larger effect across all testing conditions. No other clinically significant differences were noted between ACLR with versus without LET in regard to graft force, ATT, or IR.
