AbstractPurposeThe purpose was to calculate the incidence of osteoarthritis in individuals following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction (ACLR) in a large, national database and to examine the risk factors associated with OA development.MethodsA commercially available insurance database was queried to identify new diagnoses of knee OA in patients with ACLR. The cumulative incidence of knee OA diagnoses in patients after ACLR was calculated and stratified by time from reconstruction. Odds ratios were calculated using logistic regression to describe factors associated with a new OA diagnosis including age, sex, BMI, me...

Introduction: Poor quality of life and early-onset post-traumatic osteoarthritis (OA) are common following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR), with individual outcomes varying greatly. Early identification of factors that may be related to poor patient-reported outcomes (PROs) is important, to enable targeted interventions to be developed for these individuals. Our aim was to: (i) examine how a combined injury (meniscectomy and/or significant chondral defect at time of ACLR) and early OA features on MRI influence PROs from 1 to 5 years post-ACLR and (ii) compare PROs from 1 to 5 years post-ACLR with normative...
