Abstract
This study evaluates the outcome after surgical repair of the cruciate liga ment in 129 patients (physical examination plus questionnaire) and another 49 patients (questionnaire only) after a mean interval of 3.2 years. A modi fied Lysholm score and the OAK score together with KT 1000 arthrometry were used. Ninety-five percent of patients evaluated the overall result as 'exc ellent' or 'good'. The overall OAK objective score was good or excellent in 81%. Elongation as measured by KT 1000 arthrometry was 1.0 mm (67 N) and 1 .2 mm (90 N) on average compared with the contralateral knee.
