Background: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury rates are affected by frequency and level of competition, sex, and sport. To date, no study has sought to quantify sport-specific yearly risk for ACL tears in the high school (HS) athlete by sex and sport played. Purpose: To establish evidence-based incidence and yearly risk of ACL tears in HS athletes by sex for sports performed at the varsity level across the majority of US high schools. Study Design: Meta-analysis. Methods: PubMed, EMBASE… 
Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury Incidence in Adolescent Athletes: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis
TLDR
The risk of ACL injuries overall approached nearly 1 per 10,000 AEs for female athletes, who were almost 1.5 times as likely as male athletes to suffer an ACL injury across all adolescent sports.
Sex-Based Differences in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries Among United States High School Soccer Players: An Epidemiological Study
TLDR
Sex-based differences in the epidemiology of ACL injuries among high school soccer players in the United States differed between sex, type of exposure (practice vs competition), and mechanism of injury.
Return to Sport After Pediatric Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction and Its Effect on Subsequent Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury
TLDR
Time to return to sport was the only significant predictor of a second ACL injury, with a slower return being protective (hazard ratio per month, 0.87), and within this population, an earlier return toSport is predictive of aSecond ACL injury.
Prevention of Non-Contact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries among Youth Female Athletes: An Umbrella Review
TLDR
An umbrella review to evaluate the effectiveness of ACL injury prevention programs in reducing non-contact ACL injury rates, determine the effective components within interventions, and provide clinical recommendations is performed.
Epidemiology of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in Italian First Division Soccer Players
TLDR
The overall incidence rate of ACL injuries in Italian Serie A was 0.062 per 1000 hours, with a 14-fold risk in matches compared with training, and 25% were second injuries, which could help delineate fields of research aimed to investigate its risk factors.
Sexual Dimorphisms in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury: A Current Concepts Review
TLDR
The literature review indicated that female athletes are at significantly higher risk for ACL injuries than are their male counterparts, but the exact reasons were not clear and further research is needed to determine why there is disparity in surgical rates and what surgical techniques optimize postsurgical outcomes for female patients.
Return to Play and Performance in the Women’s National Basketball Association After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction
TLDR
WNBA athletes have a high return-to-play (RTP) rate after ACL reconstruction, and players may experience an initial decrease in playing time and performance when returning to play; however, these variables were found to return to baseline over time.
Why Female Athletes Injure Their ACL’s More Frequently? What can we do to mitigate their risk?
TLDR
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injuries are one of the most deleterious knee injuries reported in sport and a concerted effort has been made to mitigate ACL injury risk by virtue of the implementation of validated injury prevention program (IPP) interventions.
Sex, Military Occupation, and Rank Are Associated with Risk of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in Tactical-Athletes
TLDR
Sex, rank, branch of service, and military occupation were found to be risk factors for ACL injury, and the rates of ACL injury among military personnel remain much higher than the general U.S. population.

The Effects of Level of Competition, Sport, and Sex on the Incidence of First-Time Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury
TLDR
Female college athletes have the highest risk of having a first-time noncontact ACL injury among the groups studied, and there are no interactions between their effects.
A multisport epidemiologic comparison of anterior cruciate ligament injuries in high school athletics.
TLDR
Anterior cruciate ligament injury rates vary by sport, sex, and type of exposure, and Recognizing such differences is important when evaluating the effectiveness of evidence-based, targeted prevention efforts.
Gender Differences in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury vary with Activity
TLDR
There was little gender difference in the overall risk of an anterior cruciate ligament tear; however, there were gender differences in injury rates when specific sports and activities were compared and when male-only sports were removed from the overall rate assessment.
Lack of effect of a knee ligament injury prevention program on the incidence of noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injury.
TLDR
The results suggest that a twenty-minute plyometric-based exercise program that focuses on the mechanics of landing from a jump and deceleration when running performed twice a week throughout the season will not reduce the rate of noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injuries in high-school female athletes.
Return to the Preinjury Level of Competitive Sport After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction Surgery
TLDR
People may require a longer postoperative rehabilitation period than that typically advocated to facilitate a successful return to competitive sport after ACL reconstruction surgery.
Prevention and screening programs for anterior cruciate ligament injuries in young athletes: a cost-effectiveness analysis.
TLDR
Given its low cost and ease of implementation, neuromuscular training of all young athletes represents a cost-effective strategy for reducing costs and morbidity from ACL injuries.
The Influence of Age on the Effectiveness of Neuromuscular Training to Reduce Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury in Female Athletes
TLDR
It may be optimal to initiate integrative NMT programs during early adolescence, before the period of altered mechanics that increase injury risk, according to both biomechanical and epidemiological data.
Incidence of Second ACL Injuries 2 Years After Primary ACL Reconstruction and Return to Sport
TLDR
Data support the hypothesis that in the 24 months after ACLR and RTS, patients are at a greater risk to suffer a subsequent ACL injury compared with young athletes without a history of ACL injuries, and the contralateral limb of female patients appears at greatest risk.
Degeneration of the Knee Joint in Skeletally Immature Patients With a Diagnosis of an Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tear
TLDR
Young patients who underwent surgical reconstruction of an acute ACL tear >12 weeks after the injury were noted to have a significant increase in irreparable medial meniscal tears and lateral compartment chondral injuries at the time of reconstruction.
