Abstract :

Reconstruction of the torn Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) has seen a significant increase in volume over the past 3 decades. Although the most of these patients have a fairly uneventful recovery and return to sport and/or work, there are patients who present as clinical failures, with three categories represented by recurrent instability, loss of motion, and pain. There are a myriad of causes of a failed primary surgery, but the goal of revision surgery remains the same to provide a stable and functional ACL that most accurately reproduces the kinematics of the native knee. Learning Objectives ? Recognizing the common pitfalls in the diagnosis and management of the patient. ? Determine the cause of ACL graft failure. ? ACL Surgery: How to get it right the first time. ? What to do if it fails: Valuable technical pearls on how to perform Revision ACL surgery. ? How to approach the patient with a failed primary and revision ACL surgery, examination and radiographic workup, and revision ACL construction. ? Understand expected outcomes to counsel patient.
