Japanese term or phrase: 再建靭帯の固着
Field: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction

I thought of using the term fixation for 固着 but wasn't sure.
I also found a lot of websites on grafts and I did not know whether 再建靭帯 refers to a graft?

Thank you...

When talking about fixation of the 'reconstructed ligament' I think 再建靭帯 has to be 'graft', since the ligament is actually replaced with a graft rather than patched up.

Anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACL reconstruction) is a surgical tissue graft replacement of a torn anterior cruciate ligament, located in the knee, due to injury. The torn ligament is removed from the knee before the graft is inserted.
