Findings support early ACL reconstruction
May 19, 2017

DENVER — Results presented at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting pointed to better outcomes with early ACL reconstruction compared with delayed reconstruction.

At the time of surgery and at 6 months postoperatively, Robert Burnett, BS, and colleagues collected patient-reported outcome measures, KOOS and WOMAC scores for 255 patients who underwent ACL reconstruction. Burnett noted patients were categorized into either an early intervention group or a delayed intervention group based on time from injury to surgery.
