PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to compare the axial and sagittal geometry of the distal femur and proximal tibia in men and women with and without noncontact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears to determine whether a difference existed in these groups. METHODS Twenty men and 20 women with noncontact ACL tears and preoperative magnetic resonance imaging scans of their knees were compared with 20 men and 20 women who had magnetic resonance imaging for meniscal pathology. Patients were… CONTINUE READING
