Hoburg E-Beam Study

This study by Hoburg et. al. evaluates the effect of electron beam sterilization on the biomechanical properties of BTB’s used in ACL reconstruction. The study shows that electron beam sterilization has minimal effect on mechanical properties of tendons in vitro, while ensuring a higher safety of transplanted grafts.
