Background: A wish to return to sport is the primary clinical indication for reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament. The proportion of Norwegian basketball, handball and soccer players who return to sport after surgical reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament is not known.
Aims: To describe return to sport and knee function in Norwegian basketball, handball, and soccer players who have had anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
Methods: We will include athletes aged 16-40 years who are registered in the national knee ligament registry. One to three years after surgery, the included participants will answer a questionnaire about sports participation, knee function, mental aspects of return to sport, and details about their rehabilitation after surgery.
Implications: This project will provide knowledge about the expected outcomes in terms of sports participation in a nationally representative sample of pivoting sport athletes who undergo anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
