OBJECTIVE: To evaluate if returning to pivoting sport following anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) is associated with longitudinal structural and symptomatic osteoarthritis outcomes. DESIGN: Eighty-one adults aged 18-50 years were followed prospectively 1- to 5-years post-ACLR. Return to pivoting sport was assessed at 1-, 3- and 5-years. Longitudinal changes in osteoarthritis features were evaluated from 1- and 5-year magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)s using MRI Osteoarthritis Knee Score (MOAKS). Radiographic osteoarthritis and self-reported knee symptoms, function and quality of life were assessed using the Osteoarthritis Research Society International (OARSI) atlas and Knee in..
