Choosing between a bone-patellar tendon-bone (BTB) or hamstring tendon (HS) graft for primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction has long been a topic of debate and discrepancy in orthopaedic literature, with many factors contributing to the decision process. The purpose of this study is to analyze acute post-operative pain scores of patients who underwent ACL reconstruction and compare the results between BTB autograft and the HS autograft techniques.
