ACL injury is associated with early onset of osteoarthritis, a risk factor for premature death. It is estimated that only 15% of ACL injuries are identified on initial assessment, resulting in unnecessary treatment delays. Early, accurate identification of ACL injury is therefore a clinical priority.
This presentation will highlight current evidence regarding indicators to accurately identify ACL injury.
