The National Ligament Registry (NLR) was launched in 2011 by Orthopaedic surgeons, with an aim to help improve the management and outcome of knee ligament reconstructive surgery.
It was initiated in association with BASK, BOSTAA and the BOA and is run by a Steering Group.
The stimulus for the NLR is simple; in order to improve best practice, there needs to be constant analysis of the outcome of knee ligament reconstruction. The registry allows consultants to:
Collect demographic data, understanding the nature of the injury
Identify trends in practice, helping to track new developments
Identify techniques that may have suboptimal outcome at the earliest opportunity
Provide functional outcome data and complication rates, to better advise patients on expectations
Fully understand the results of their surgery on patients.
