Abstract

Revision anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction can present a series of unique challenges for the both the patient and the treating surgeon. The Multicenter ACL Revision Study (MARS) was established to identify the factors contributing to ACL graft failure and report on the outcomes following revision reconstruction. In this article we review the development and early to midterm findings of the MARS group.
