BACKGROUND: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries do not effectively heal. Tendon graft tissue after reconstruction shows rapid tissue turnover and 'ligamentization.' It is unknown whether native torn ACL tissue undergoes significant collagen turnover after injury or is arrested by the intraarticular environment. It is also unknown whether injury mechanism or chronicity affect torn ligament tissue turnover. METHODS: Thirty-three mid-substance ACL biopsies were obtained during primary arthroscopic ACL reconstruction (n=31; nine contact injuries, 22 non-contact injuries, 22 males, 11 females; mean age 28...
