Division I athletes were shown to have high rates of reoperation and reinjury, and precollegiate ACL reconstruction was associated with very high rates of repeat ACL injury to the graft or opposing knee, according to study findings.

Researchers retrospectively reviewed the charts of 35 athletes who underwent precollegiate ACL reconstruction (PC group) and 54 athletes who underwent intracollegiate ACL reconstruction (IC group), collecting graft survivorship, reoperation rates and career length information.
