PurposePrevious research has demonstrated that women have a higher risk of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury than men. Tibiofemoral articular geometry may play a role in the occurrence of ACL tears. The purpose of this study was to analyze the gender-specific geometric characteristics differences in tibiofemoral morphology in ACL-deficient patients.MethodsMedial tibial slope (MTS), lateral tibial slope (LTS), medial tibial plateau concavity, medial and lateral femoral condyle convexity… 
Femoral trochlear morphology is associated with anterior cruciate ligament injury in skeletally immature patients
TLDR
It was showed that the difference in trochlear morphology should be considered between normal children and pediatric patients with ACL injury to increase the awareness regarding ACL injuries and investigate the possibility of gender differences.
MRI comparison of injury mechanism and anatomical factors between sexes in non-contact anterior cruciate ligament injuries
TLDR
In patients with non-contact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture, females showed greater lateral tibial slope and shallower medial tibIAL depth compared to males, however it did not affect the sex differences in injury pattern.
Anatomic risk factor for meniscal lesion in association with ACL rupture
TLDR
A greater anteroposterior length of the medial/lateral femoral condyle relative to the medial-lateral tibial plateau is associated with an increased risk of meniscal lesions in association with acute ACL rupture.
Tibial plateau morphology in dogs with cranial cruciate ligament insufficiency
TLDR
Medial tibial plateau convexity differed between the CCL affected and contralateral sound stifle in dogs with unilateral CCL insufficiency.
Greater medial tibial slope is associated with increased anterior tibial translation in females with an ACL-deficient knee
TLDR
Greater medial tibial slope is associated with increased anterior tIBial translation in females with ACL-deficient knees compared to males, despite the presence or absence of meniscal lesions.
The influence of tibial plateau morphometric risk factors on ACL injury: A retrospective case control study: An Indian perspective
TLDR
A higher incidence of ACL injuries is noted among individuals with increased MTS, LTS and decreased MTD, however, the contribution of various Tibial plateau morphometrics towards increasing the chances of an ACL injury varies between different ethnic population groups.
Management of the female anterior cruciate ligament: current concepts
TLDR
Overall, the influence of female gender on ACL injury treatment has been an area of heavy research recently, but more research is needed to elicit the reasons for physical and psychological differences between men and women in order to clarify optimal postoperative management.
Clinical-Grade MRI-Based Methods to Identify Combined Anatomic Factors That Predict ACL Injury Risk in Male and Female Athletes
TLDR
Simpler methods using MRIs downgraded to a clinical- grade resolution can identify the same knee anatomic factors previously found to significantly contribute to ACL injury risk using sophisticated methods and research-grade resolution MRIs.
Concurrent validity and reliability of a semi-automated approach to measuring the magnetic resonance imaging morphology of the knee joint in active youth.
TLDR
These measurement properties estimates are equal, if not better than previously reported methods suggesting that this novel semi-automated software is an accurate, reliable, and efficient alternative method for measuring large numbers of geometric features of the tibiofemoral and patellofemoral joints from MR studies.

Is there a correlation between posterior tibial slope and non-contact anterior cruciate ligament injuries?
TLDR
The results of this study suggest that increased posterior tibial slope appears to contribute to non-contact ACL injuries in females, but not in males.
The association between posterior-inferior tibial slope and anterior cruciate ligament insufficiency.
The Relationship between Posterior Tibial Slope and Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
TLDR
To determine if there is a difference in posterior tibial slope angle between patients with a history of noncontact ACL injury and a control group with no history of ACL injury, and to examine differences in tibials angle between male and female subjects within each group.
An association of lateral knee sagittal anatomic factors with non-contact ACL injury: sex or geometry?
TLDR
All female patients (both ACL-injured and uninjured) and ACL- injured male patients shared a common lateral knee geometry characterized by a smaller tibial plateau length relative to the femur and by more convex articulating surfaces of the proximal aspect of the tibia and the distal aspect ofThe femur.
Increased lateral tibial slope predicts high-grade rotatory knee laxity pre-operatively in ACL reconstruction
TLDR
Increased slope of the lateral tibial plateau might be an important anatomical variable predicting high-grade rotatory laxity in patients with ACL injury and can be useful in the clinical setting in predicting potential non-copers to conservative therapy and aid in the individualization of the reconstructive procedures of patients.
Combined Anatomic Factors Predicting Risk of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury for Males and Females
TLDR
Combinations of knee joint geometry measurements provided more information about the risk of noncontact ACL injury than individual measures, and the aspects of geometry that best explained the relationship between knee geometry and therisk of injury were different between males and females.
Femoral Intercondylar Notch Stenosis and Correlation to Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
TLDR
Ath letes with intercondylar notch stenosis appear to be at increased risk for noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injuries in pivoting and cutting sports.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament—Injured Subjects Have Smaller Anterior Cruciate Ligaments than Matched Controls
TLDR
This study shows that there are anthropometric differences between the knees of subjects with a noncontact ACL injury and those without an ACL injury, suggesting that ACL volume may play a direct role in non contact ACL injury.
The influence of the tibial plateau slopes on injury of the anterior cruciate ligament: a meta-analysis
TLDR
This meta-analysis suggests that both, increased medial and lateral tibial plateau slopes, are associated with increased susceptibility to ACL injury regardless of gender.
The influence of bony morphology on the magnitude of the pivot shift
TLDR
The purpose of this study was to correlate clinical pivot shift grading with femoral condyle size as measured on pre-operative magnet resonance imaging (MRI) of patients with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, and found a smaller (ML) lateral tibial plateau diameter may contribute to a patient's higher-grade pivot shift.
