  • CONCLUSIONS: ACL reconstruction in patients older than 50 years is a safe procedure with good results that are comparable to those of younger patients previously reported. Age itself is not a contraindication to ACL surgery because physiological age, clinical symptoms and functional requests are more important than chronological age in decision process. Since cohort size in the present study is not large enough, and taking into account the high occurrence of concomitant meniscal and chondral lesions, more high-quality studies are necessary to draw definitive conclusions about development of osteoarthritis of the knee after ACL surgery in these patients.
