Resumen

Several factors associated with graft preparation for the surgery of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) like the wrong thawed, prophylaxis, bone cuts, excessive bone removal as well as positioning problems like a tunnels-graft mismatch, insufficient harvesting of the donor's tendon, size graft limitations (length and diameter), uncontrolled rotation of graft in their longitudinal axis, over or under tensioned graft, fixation mistakes, bone defects, secondary arthrofibrosis or morbidity of the donor site, and others factors importantly affect the outcomes of the ACL surgery. In this sense, the Achilles tendon Allograft is an advantageous technique where many of the previous limitation factors described can be controlled during an appropriate preparation. However, to obtain the maximum potentialities of the graft a detailed knowledge of the preparation is required. Hence, we aimed to describe how to prepare the Achilles tendon Allograft to control the graft's length and diameter, bone removal, and fixation requirements.
