ACL reconstruction with meniscal resection may not impact short-term outcomes

August 27, 2015

At 2 years postoperatively, results of this study showed ACL reconstruction with meniscal resection did not contribute to patients’ decreased clinical outcomes.

Researchers used the Norwegian Knee Ligament Registry to evaluate outcomes for 4,691 patients with primary ACL reconstruction. They used the KOOS scoring system to evaluate pain and other symptoms, activities of daily living (ADL), sport and recreation function and quality of life. Using multiple linear regression modeling, the researchers compared results for patients with isolated ACL reconstruction to patients with ACL reconstruction performed with lateral meniscal repair, lateral meniscal resection, medial meniscal repair or medial meniscal resection.
