Allograft vs. Autograft... advice please...
« on: March 11, 2014, 12:22:07 AM »
Hi, just joined the web board, and my story goes like this.. Recently tore my ACL and meniscus. I am a  35 year old female a runner, or at least I was. my dr. is recommending to use the allograft vs autograft. I have done research on this over and over again. My surgery is 3-24. So please any advice thoughts success stories or even the worse ones please share. My head is really spinning over all the data I have looked into.

Some say no under 40.... some say yes over 30.... some say no due to irradiation potential of cancer cells, hiv aids and hepatitis. Thanks in advance :) Amber
