New Zealand ACL Registry

Welcome to the New Zealand ACL Registry, an initiative of the New Zealand Knee Society, a part of the New Zealand Orthopaedic Association.  The ACL Registry collects information on the causes of ACL injuries, their treatment and outcomes following ACL reconstruction. The aim of the registry is to promote the best possible management of ACL injuries in New Zealand

For Patients

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is a fibrous band, like a rope, that connects the two bones of the knee joint. The ACL is often injured during sporting activities such as rugby, soccer or netball.
