Lydia Coutre of Crain’s Cleveland reports that a Cleveland Clinic researcher has received $6 million from the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to study techniques for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.

The five-year grant is led by principal investigator Dr. Kurt P. Spindler of the Clinic and founder of the Multicenter Orthopaedic Outcomes Network (MOON) Group. The funds will support a multi-center, randomized clinical trial that aims to compare outcomes of a new surgical technique, Bridge-Enhanced ACL Repair (BEAR), to those of traditional ACL reconstruction surgery, according to a news release.
