1 doctor weighed in:

I had ACL reconstruction surgery and my surgeon said that my patella tendon graft was too long. Is that bad? Can someone explain how he fixed it?

In brief: Acl

Not sure exactly but if the graft was "too long" the knee may end up loose.
I'm not sure what he meant by "too long" because I have never seen that before. If the surgery was completed I am convinced that your knee will do well
