TEODOR NEGRU, STEFAN MOGOS, IOAN CRISTIAN STOICA THE LEARNING CURVE IN ARTHROSCOPIC ACL RECONSTRUCTION THE IMPACT ON THE SURGICAL TIME AND POSTOPERATIVE CLINICAL RESULTS
Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is a common injury. The objective of the current study was to evaluate if the learning curve has an impact on surgical time and postoperative clinical outcomes after anatomic single-bundle anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) using an outside-in tunnel drilling hamstrings technique. The learning curve has a positive impact on surgical time but has no influence on postoperative clinical outcomes at short time follow-up.
