Abstract
The mean cortex-tunnel angle was 47.5° ± 9.3° in the anteromedial approach group and 28.3° ± 7.4° in the anterolateral approach group. The mean long diameter of the tunnels in the anteromedial approach group was 10.6 ± 1.0 mm and in the anterolateral approach group it was 14.0 ± 1.5 mm. These two parameters showed statistically significant differences between the 2 groups (P < .01). The mean maximum load at failure for the anteromedial approach group was 385.4 ± 139.7 N, and for the anterolateral approach group it was 225.1 ± 144.1 N. This difference was statistically significant (P = .021).
