The National Ligament Regsitry
The National Ligament Registry (NLR) was founded by Sean O'Leary in 2003. It is designed by surgeons for the benefit of patients and aims to help improve the management and outcome of knee ligament reconstructive surgery.
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.
