  2. Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

To assess the effects (benefits and harms) of interventions for treating injuries to the medial ligaments of the knee. We intend to compare different types of conservative intervention (e.g. no bracing versus bracing), surgical versus conservative intervention, different surgical interventions (e.g. reconstruction versus repair) and early post-operative treatments.
