Numerous studies have estimated the role of hemarthrosis and intra-articular drains in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive procedures. Long-standing hemarthrosis and related pain can disrupt rehabilitation and lead to arthrofibrosis. A significant number of orthopaedic surgeons use intra-articular suction drains following arthroscopic ACL reconstruction. Hemarthrosis and pain have undesirable effects on the functional outcomes of ACL reconstruction in the early postoperative period.
