Question - Surgery (allograft ACL reconstruction)

by Sandra

My 17 year old college football player injured himself at a game with what they called an "unhappy triad" He is to have surgery soon, but in meeting with the surgeon he talked about using a cadaver graft. Is that something to be concerned about? Is there a potential to reject the tissue? Is it possible to transmit disease with the cadaver? Thanks
