Objective: Unreconstructed anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears cause repeated incidences of giving-way and rotational-translational instability. The aim of this study was to test our hypothesis that delayed surgical treatment of patients with ACL tears, especially those with high Tegner activity levels, results in more severe and complicated meniscal and osteochondral lesions with potential affect on the outcome.
