Forensic Analysis Sheds Light on Ligament Injuries
News

A team have used a forensic approach to reconstruct injuries by examining bone bruises on the knees of 15 men and 15 women with torn anterior cruciate ligaments (ACL). This showed while women are two to four times more likely than men to tear the ACL in their knee, the cause of this injury is no different between the sexes.
