The necessity for identification of risk factors for Anterior Cruciate Ligament, ACL injury has challenged many investigators. Many authors have reported lower Notch Width Index, NWI measured on radiographs in patients with midsubstance ACL lesions compared to control groups. Since a narrow intercondylar notch has been implicated as a possible risk factor related to ACL injury we decided to compare NWI measured on MRI scans between age-matched groups with acute ACL injury with those of the… CONTINUE READING
