PURPOSE To determine whether generalized hypermobility and contralateral knee hyperextension affect failure rates and patient-related outcomes after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). METHODS A total of 226 consecutive patients presenting with acute ACL tears were prospectively evaluated for generalized hypermobility by a modified Beighton criteria. Minimum 2-year follow-up was achieved for 183 knees (81%). Patients underwent ACLR with either bone-patellar-tendon (BPTB… CONTINUE READING
