Purpose Recent studies have shown that several genetic factors can cause susceptibility to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture. The aim of the present study was to evaluate certain underlying factors that increase the risk of ACL rupture. Methods Eight hundred thirty-six patients with ACL rupture who underwent ACL reconstructive surgery from 2010 to 2013 at an academic center completed a minimum of 5 years post-operation follow-up. The collected variables included sex, age, height, weight, exercise level, time interval between ACL rupture in the first knee and contralateral ACL rupture, dominant leg, side of the involved knee and sibling history of ACL rupture. Results The median follow-up duration was 6.5 (range: 5-8) years. Eighty-three patients (9.9%) had a contralateral ACL rupture, and 155 patients (18.5%) had siblings with a history of ACL rupture. The rate of contralateral ACL rupture was three times higher in women than in men and in patients with siblings with a history of ACL rupture than in those without such history. In addition, the risk of contralateral ACL rupture was higher in those younger than 30 years of age, those with a BMI of 20-25 kg/m(2) and those who participated in regular sports activity. However, whether the involved knee was on the dominant or nondominant side had no effect on the incidence of contralateral ACL rupture. The results of the study showed that 69 (83.1%) of the contralateral ACL ruptures occurred within the first 2 years after the primary operation. Conclusion In a 5- to 8-year follow-up, one out of every ten patients had a contralateral ACL rupture, and two out of every ten patients had siblings with a history of ACL rupture. The findings suggest that having a sibling with a history of ACL rupture and being female are important risk factors for ACL rupture of the contralateral knee.

"The rate of contralateral ACL rupture was three times higher in women than in men and in patients with siblings with a history of ACL rupture than in those without such history." Very peculiar. I wonder which genetic factors play a role
