PURPOSE Infection after arthroscopic anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction is reported to be rare but can cause significant morbidity. The purpose of this study was to test the null hypothesis that there is no difference in infection rates between techniques and no difference in outcome of different techniques after treatment of this complication. METHODS From a consecutive case series of 1,231 patients who underwent ACL reconstructions with 3 different techniques from 1988 through… CONTINUE READING
