Restoring knee stability through reconstruction, while providing symptomatic relief, has not been shown to reduce the incidence of degenerative changes. In fact, recent studies have shown that 50%–60% of ACL-reconstructed patients go on to develop degenerative changes or frank osteo-arthritis. In light of these data, our group suggests that the… CONTINUE READING
