RECOMMENDATION: It is considered safe to perform a revision ACLR following completion of successful treatment for infection and normalization of clinical and laboratory parameters upon resolution of the infection. The literature does not suggest a specific time frame following resolution of the infection prior to performing revision ACLR.
