This study is a pragmatic study for a parallel groups, randomized clinical trial in which 600 patients with anterior cruciate ligament insufficiency who are undergoing surgery, are randomly allocated to either ACL reconstruction alone (control) or ACL reconstruction with lateral extra-articular tenodesis (experimental). Surgeons, data collectors, and the data analyst will be blind to group allocation. The primary outcome is rate of failure. Secondary outcomes include disease specific quality of life, return to function and sport. Patients are followed for two years postoperative.
