Incidence of ACL injury after a ACL reconstruction and returning to sports.

There is a lot we do not understand about ACL injury. In a systematic review by Paterno et al, for reasons not well understood, females that previously underwent ACL reconstructions were found to be 16x more likely to develop a new ACL injury! Furthermore, female athletes were 4 times more likely to suffer a second ACL injury and 6 times more likely to suffer a opposite knee injury compared to their male peers.
