Similar function seen between patients released to sport vs those not after ACL reconstruction

August 30, 2015

A comparison of patients released to return to activity after ACL reconstruction and those who were not found no link between clinical impairment measures used to determine return to sport and patient function.

Researchers examined 98 patients 6 months after ACL reconstruction for swelling, range of motion, strength and graft stability. Pain scores, effusion presence, range of motion, Lachman and pivot test results were also collected. Graft laxity was also measured using the KT-1000 arthrometer. Patients were allowed to return to sport based on their clinical evaluation.
