Postoperative complications following ACL reconstruction: Prevention and management
Author(s): Jakkula Nityananda Rao, Moola Sohith Mahadeva Reddy and Karri Jagadeeswar Reddy
Abstract: This article aims to conduct a literature analysis on the current care and prevention strategies for postoperative problems following the repair of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). A presentation will be given on current trends in rehabilitation procedures, suggestions for interventions, and anticipated milestones in the healing process after ACL surgery. In recent years, protocols for ACL repair have progressed to a criterion-based progression rather than a tissue healing time frame. Because of advancements in ACL surgical reconstruction techniques and rehabilitation protocols, the danger of postoperative complications can manifest itself at any point during the recovery process. This includes both the beginning and the end of the process. In this paper, we will examine the significance of preventative measures for postoperative patient who has undergone ACL repair. Infection and loss of knee motion and strength are short-term complications that can occur after an ACL reconstruction. Long-term complications can include a secondary ACL injury to either the involved knee or the contralateral knee and the inability to return to high-level sports after this procedure. The multifaceted causes of secondary ACL injuries and the limited capacity of patients to return to high-level activities should continue to be the focus of future research.
