Tearing an ACL significantly raises risk of suffering a second knee injury
Tearing an ACL significantly raises risk of suffering a second knee injury (July 11, 2013 - Insidermedicine) From Cincinnati - People who have had their ACL reconstructed are significantly more likely to injure the ligament again, according to a report presented at the annual meeting for the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. Researchers compared nearly 80 patients who underwent ACL reconstruction to 47 healthy controls. Participants were between 10-25 years old and were followed for 2 years. Results showed that those in the ALCR group were 6x more likely to suffer another ACL injury when compared to those who had never injured their ACL.
