Multi-ligament knee injuries often require prompt evaluation (on the field, and/or in the emergency department), stabilization of the joint with a splint, assessment for vessel injury and prompt X-ray and MRI. Depending on the severity of the injury, emergent surgery may be necessary to stabilize the joint, and repair blood vessel injuries, and/or fractures. Knee ligament repair or reconstruction can be done in a staged fashion depending on the circumstances and the condition of the joint. Often, more than one surgery is needed, and recovery can be prolonged, with mixed results.
