RECOMMENDATION: Infection following ACLR is not a surgical emergency in most cases. Sepsis associated with infected anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) requires an emergency treatment. Most surgeons agree that surgical intervention should take place without delay, on a prompt basis, preferably on the same day as the clinical presentation of an ACLR infection. The patient’s condition needs to be optimized prior to surgery.
