    • Abstract:
      Purpose: The study purpose is to characterize the sizes of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) insertion site and intercondylar notch in Chinese patients undergoing ACL surgery. The findings will provide a reference for individualized clinical treatment of ACL rupture.Methods: For this study, 137 patients (102 males, 35 females) with an average age of 30.3 ± 9.5 years (range 14-52 years) undergoing ACL reconstruction were included. The tibial ACL insertion site length and width and the intercondylar notch width were measured on MRI and arthroscopically using a ruler. Descriptive statistics of the patients, the distribution of the measurements and the differences between males and females were calculated.Results: The ACL tibial insertion size and intercondylar notch width in Chinese patients with ACL injuries, as obtained by MRI and intra-operatively, exhibited significant individual variability. The tibial ACL insertion site had a mean length of 13.5 ± 2.1 mm and width of 10.9 ± 1.5 mm as measured on MRI and a mean length of 13.3 ± 2.1 mm and width of 11.0 ± 1.6 mm as measured intra-operatively. The mean intercondylar notch width was 15.2 ± 2.4 mm on MRI and the mean length was 15.0 ± 2.5 mm intra-operatively. The inter-rater reliability between MRI and intra-operative measurements confirmed that the two methods were consistent. In 65.7% of individuals, the ACL tibial insertion length was < 14 mm.Conclusion: The distribution of tibial footprint size in Chinese patients is different from that in Western populations. There is a higher proportion of subjects with a tibial footprint size < 14 mm among Chinese patients with ACL injury. Therefore, great care should be taken when treating this population with the double-bundle technique or larger graft options. Level of evidence IV. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
