Abstract
STUDY SYNOPSIS

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are common, severe and disabling knee injuries occurring in young active athletes. Treatment could be either surgical or non-surgical,both involving extensive rehabilitation for at least 4-6 months. Two RCTs comparing surgical and non-surgical treatment of ACL injured knees was performed in the 80’s and both failed to present any difference between the two treatment groups [1, 2].

Approximately 150 000 surgical reconstructions are performed annually in the US alone with an estimated cost of more than 2 billion dollars including the postoperative rehabilitation [3, 4]. This study was designed to investigate in a randomized, controlled trial whether the outcome of... (More)

This study was designed to investigate in a randomized, controlled trial whether the outcome of treatment according to a rehabilitation program after acute ACL disruption improved by adding ACL reconstruction.
