## ESSKA-ESMA SURVEY: Surgeon practice patterns regarding anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction and rehabilitation |

### Dear ESSKA member,

Over the past few decades, there have been significant modifications in both surgical technique and in the methods of rehabilitation used for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. This trend can be aided by a number of factors including geography, level of experience, refinement of surgical technique, instrumentation and implant devices, and better understanding of ACL anatomy.

We are conducting an online survey of ESSKA members, to investigate their attitudes regarding graft type, surgical method and post-operative care in ACL reconstruction.

Your feedback will be used to compare the preferences of subgroups based on graft choice, surgical techniques, age, nationality and number of ACL reconstruction operations performed per year and to compare them with published clinical guidelines.

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and we think you will find it interesting.

Of course, any information you provide will be kept strictly confidential and used only for statistical analysis.

If you have any questions about this survey, please e-mail esma@esska.org.

Please complete the survey within the next few days. The website is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

Thank you for your consideration.
