Many theories exist as to how anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries occur and as to why the incidence of ACL injury appears to be higher for women than for men, given equal exposure rates. Shelbourne et al. 1 published an article in 1998 that described the relationship of the intercondylar notch width of the femur (distance between the two 'condyles' of the thigh bone) and the incidence of ACL injuries after ACL reconstruction. This present article provides updated data that has been collected as part of an ongoing prospective analysis of ACL injuries.
