We conducted a retrospective study, between 2013 and 2018. The study was conducted by analyzing the comparative imaging of two groups of patients. The two groups comprise 42 patients, 14 women and 28 men aged between 17 and 70 years old, to whom objective variables of statistical relevance were tracked. The results of this study show that there is a significant correlation between an angle value of less than 45 degrees and the rupture of the anterior crossed ligament.
