On Wednesday 8 January 2020, A.M. Suijkerbuijk will defend his PhD dissertation, entitled: ‘Hamstring Tendon Regeneration Following Harvest for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction’.
When surgical intervention is needed to reconstruct a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), the hamstring tendons are often harvested and subsequently used as autograft. The harvested hamstring tendons have the potential to regenerate. The main of this thesis was therefore to improve the clinical outcome following harvest of the hamstring tendons through a better understanding of the process of hamstring tendon regeneration.
The public defence will take place at the Prof. Andries Queridoroom, 3rd floor Education Center, Erasmus MC. The ceremony will begin exactly at 15.30 hrs. In light of the solemn nature of the ceremony, we recommend that you do not take children under the age of 6 to the first part of the ceremony.
