AbstractIntroduction:
There is still controversy regarding the bio-enhanced non-reconstructive ACL treatment.
Materials and methods:
A search for articles in databases was performed in February 2017. The objective and subjective evaluations of clinical studies and biomechanical and histological data of preclinical studies were extracted.
Results:
Eighteen articles were included for analysis. In clinical studies, although subjective scores were significantly improved, the rate of re-operation rate was high. In preclinical studies, bio-enhancing techniques demonstrated promotion of the healing of ACL.
Conclusions:
The efficacy of biological enhancement cannot be validated in clinical studies. Preclinical studies showed improved biomechanical and healing potential.
