Abstract

Failed multiligament knee reconstruction is a challenging problem due to recurrent pathologic laxity that is often associated with limb malalignment, meniscus deficiency, articular cartilage insufficiency, decreased motion, compromised bone stock, and a paucity of graft sources. Revision surgical indications and techniques require a comprehensive evaluation of the patient, injury and treatment factors along with a focused physical examination and advanced imaging. A stepwise treatment approach can be effective in the evaluation of revision surgery and also in setting realistic patient goals.
