Introduction: Previous studies demonstrated that factors such as gender and height correlate with the diameter of hamstring autograft. We conducted this study to get local data on hamstring graft length, size and factors determined it. Material and Methods: We included 32 patients underwent primary ACL reconstruction using hamstring autograft from January 2017 to November 2020. We recorded gracilis and semitendinosus graft length, graft size, and its associated factors. Result: The average length for semitendinosus and gracilis tendon were 285.9 and plusmn;28.95mm and 263.8 and plusmn;27.33mm. The mean graft diameter was 8.8 and plusmn;0.67mm. Height had significant correlation with gracilis length (r=0.466) and graft size (r=0.568). Conclusion: The average hamstring graft sizewas 8.8 and plusmn;0.67mm. Height is the strongest correlating factor.
