Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are one of the most commonly injured ligaments of the knee. In the US, the incidence rate has reached 100,000 – 200,000 people per year based on the annual population. At Dr. Hasan Sadikin Bandung Hospital, the incidence has reached 32 cases from January 2020 – January 2021. This is a comparative analytical study with a cross-sectional approach that aims to determine whether there is a difference between the ACL footprint size that Monica has examined on the previous cadaveric knee and the ACL footprint size using the MRI knee. Measurement of ACL footprint on cadavers by Adisuhanto on the cadaveric ACL footprint length femoral site (12.05±1.18 mm), the width (8.65±1.02 mm). This size is compared with the results of the MRI measurement of the knee ACL footprint length femoral site (11.36±1.5 mm), a mean width (8.5±1.06 mm). Cadaveric ACL footprint length on the tibial site (12.11 ± 1.29 mm), the width (9.22±0.79 mm). These were compared to the MRI size of the ACL footprint length on the tibial site (13.18±1.32 mm), and the width (8.6±1.31 mm). This study was analogous to the study of measuring ACL footprint on cadavers so that this MRI ACL footprint study can represent cadaveric ACL footprint research with sufficient previous samples with p-value <0.05. The conclusion is that Indonesian ACL footprints were smaller than Thai, Chinese, and Americans.
