Abstract

Sterile pretibial cysts are a complication after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with bioabsorbable screws. We present a case series of sterile pretibial abscesses following ACL reconstruction with bioabsorbable poly-L-lactide (PLLA) screws, including a patient that developed a saphenous neuroma and a patient who underwent ACL reconstruction with tibialis anterior (TA) allograft. Neither of these circumstances has been previously reported in the literature.
