Lecturer discusses how far ACL research has come, how much is unknown
May 5, 2016

BARCELONA, Spain — More knowledge of the ACL is needed to fully understand the factors related to nonoperative healing of the ligament, the role of timing of the reconstruction in clinical outcomes and why ACL reconstruction reduces pivot shift in the knee, according to a presenter, here.

In his highlight lecture at the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy Congress, here, Jon Karlsson, MD, PhD, said sports injury prevention, particularly injuries to the ACL, should be the focus of more investigations in musculoskeletal medicine. He also called for sport-specific rehabilitation, which is an up-and-coming area, to be more criteria-based and said the result of a shorter and safer return to sport may come from minimally invasive surgery.
