Abstract: Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most serious sports-related injuries, with significant short- and long-term morbidity. Generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) and specific knee laxity are factors that have been associated with an increased risk of ACL injury and inferior postoperative outcome, but the state of the evidence is unclear and the available information is limited. This thesis consists of five studies with the overall aim of investigating how two main concept... more
