Altmetrics Information

Other information
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.
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.
The efficacy of biological enhancement cannot be validated in clinical studies. Preclinical studies showed improved biomechanical and healing potential.
