Abstract

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the most frequently injured ligament in the knee. In a prospective study involving members of a Southern California Health Maintenance Organization (San Diego Kaiser-Permanente), Miyasaka et al reported an incidence of 60 people per 100,000 members with pathologic knee motion (≥3 mm KT-1000 arthrometer side-to-side difference) following an acute injury to the knee.1 The ACL accounted for approximately 50% of these injuries, making it the most frequently injured knee ligament.
