Purpose : To compare the mid term with long term follow up results of the anterior cruciate ligament(ACL)> reconstruction using patellar tendon. Materials and Methods : Seventy-six cases, which could be followed up more than 2 years were included in this study. They were classified into two groups, mid-term group(41 cases) with mean follow-up periods of 2 years and 10 months and long-term group(35 cases) off years and 6 months. Clinical and radiological results and peripatellar complications were evaluated & compared. Results . There was no statistically significant difference in radiological finding and anterior instability between two groups. However, the incidence of anterior knee pain, paresthesia at incision site, kneeling pain, crepitus and quadriceps weakness was lower in long-term group than in mid-term group. Conclusion : ACL reconstruction using patellar tendon graft could successfully restone the stability of knee joint, but there are some complications in donor site and patellofemoral joint. However this complications were gradually decreased with long term follow-up.
