ACL-deficient knee does a hypermobile lax acl exist without rupture? Can a lax hypermobile knee cause damage to the articular cartilage?

Loose joints. Hyperlaxity of the patella can lead to Patellofemoral joint damage of the knee. This usually occurs after repetitive patella dislocations or subluxations. ACL insufficiency usually does not occur in people w hyperlaxity. Albeit they may be more prone to a ACL rupture. I hope this info helps. .
