A 40-year-old recreational athlete injured his left knee on a "moon bouncer" at his child's birthday party. Before the injury, he regularly went hiking and downhill skiing and played basketball and tennis. Because the injury caused persistent symptoms of knee instability, he elected to undergo an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction using allograft. At the time of surgery, the patient's skin examination was unremarkable, and no surgical complications were noted. The patient went home on the day of surgery.
