Abstract

Acellular xenogeneic tissues have the potential to provide 'off-the-shelf' grafts for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) repair. To ensure that such grafts are sterile following packaging, it is desirable to use terminal sterilization methods. Here, the effects of gamma and electron beam ...read more
