The Anterior Cruciate Ligament Research Retreat has released a new summary statement of their 2019 meeting. While the initial retreats (2001 to 2012) focused on primary injury risk factor identification and prevention this retreat has expanded to include prevention of the short- and long-term consequences of the initial injury (e.g., osteoarthritis). The summary discusses primary risk assessment, primary prevention, as well as secondary and tertiary risk and prevention.
