Abstract

In many cases, athletes return to play after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. In such cases, after a second ACL tear, these athletes may again expert full return to play after ACL revision. Unfortunately, results after revision ACL reconstruction are inferior to results after primary surgery. Sport specific data is difficult to determine, as are predictors of positive outcomes which include concomitant pathology or psychological factors. Chances of return to the same level may be 60% or less.
