Eleven (34%) of the 32 knees in AAIHP had BME in at least one location, but none of the controls had BME.
Our study identified the prevalence of ACL damage to be 9% in AAIHP and 0% in the controls, which was similar to the finding of Tuominen et al .,[4] who found ACL ruptures in 10.5% of male international ice hockey players.
In conclusion, MRI findings suggest that knee changes, including fluid in bursae, meniscal grade II signals, BME, articular cartilage (predominantly at the patellofemoral joint), and ACL damage, are more common in AAIHP than in asymptomatic healthy individuals.
Background: Research on the changes to knee structures in asymptomatic amateur ice hockey players (AAIHPs) has been limited.
