Successful anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction requires a functional enthesis, the interface between a bone and ligament or tendon. The enthesis normally exhibits a gradient of tissue phenotypes to smooth the transition from the compliant ligament to stiff bone and decrease stress concentrations between the 2 tissues. However, this structure does not fully regenerate after surgical repair leading to increased rupture rates and incidence of osteoarthritis.
