ACL Injury in Female Athletes
"ACL reconstruction is one of the most commonly performed procedures in orthopedic practice. Young athletes sustain ACL injuries requiring reconstruction at alarming rates. The ratio of ACL rupture in female athletes is three times more likely than in their male counterparts (Sutton, 2013). Additionally, females postoperatively are 15 times more likely to rupture the reconstructed knee within the first year, as compared to their male counterparts (Sutton, 2013)."
