Levels of cytokines in synovial fluid before ACL reconstruction surgery. Cytokine levels in synovial fluid before ACL reconstruction surgery were quantitated by Multiplex ELISA. The Mann-Whitney’s U-test was employed for statistical analysis (Asterisk indicates p-value less than 0.05). Group I; patients with preoperative periods less than 60 days (n = 13). Group II; patients with preoperative periods of 60 days or longer (n = 11
