Abstract [en]

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is a common injury and is often associated with concomitant injuries to the menisci and cartilage and, in the long term, osteoarthritis. Preventive training programs have shown to be highly effective in terms of reducing the risk for ACL injury in sports. ACL reconstruction is indicated when the patient experiences symtoms of instability (»giving way«) despite rehabilitation with a physiotherapist aiming to gain neuromuscular control of the knee. Early ACL reconstruction may be indicated, for example when the patient desires to return to pivoting contact-sports at high level. Modern surgical technique for ACL reconstruction has evolved rapidly and includes »anatomic reconstruction« and individualized treatment, where each patient’s unique anatomy, injury and requests on knee function are taken into consideration. In Sweden, more than 90% of all ACL reconstructions performed are included into the Swedish National ACL Register.
