AJSM March 2016 Podcast: Return-to-Sport Outcomes After Revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Surgery
There are limited and inconsistent data regarding return-to-sport outcomes after revision anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). This study hypothesized that return-to-sport rates will be lower after revision ACLR when compared with primary ACLR.
After evaluating a study cohort of 136 eligible patients, this study concluded that return-to-sport rates of patients after revision ACLR were similar to those after their primary surgery but were still lower than the reported rates of ACLR patients who did not need revision surgery. Greater chondral pathologic abnormalities at revision surgery were associated with reduced function at follow-up.
