Low risk of moderate, severe post-traumatic OA seen 10 years after ACL reconstruction

Young athletes who underwent ACL reconstruction had a low risk of moderate and severe post-traumatic osteoarthritis 10-years after surgery, according to study results.

“The whole point of us doing this analysis early to get a real answer on percentages is so that, when the 20-year-old who tears [an] ACL asks, ‘What does this mean for my knee in 10 years?’, [we can say] chances are good,” Joshua S. Everhart, MD, orthopedic surgeon at Indiana University Health and an assistant professor at Indiana University School of Medicine, told Healio Orthopedics.
