We present the case of 28 years old male elite Handball Player with a first ACLR (Anterior Cross
Ligament Reconstruction) under surgery on the 21
of January 2019 in Hungary and a posterior
surgery on January 22
, 2020 in Barcelona-Spain with Re-tensing and reconstruction of the
popliteus tendon and lateral collateral ligament. The reason of the second surgery was the ligament
instability of the lateral and collateral posterior of the right knee and a residual laxity of the anteriorposterior cross Ligaments.
After 6 months of the first post-operative rehabilitation in Amsterdam the handball Player visited
our clinic in Bucharest in August 27
, 2019 by petition of the Dinamo Handball team manager to
be re-evaluated and complete his rehabilitation until he will be able to reach the level to return to
competition and play the national and European league with the Dinamo Handball team Bucharest.
The main objective of our Case report is to show the importance to provide further screening and
prevention programs to find possible inter-individual presence of risk factors” in the context of the
