  1. 1. Evaluation of patients with an anterior cruciate ligament rupture, before and after reconstruction, with special emphasis on the use of the KT-1000 arthrometer

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Ninni Sernert; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; anterior cruciate ligament; KT-1000 arthrometer; knee evaluation systems; knee; laxity; right left knee laxity difference;

    Abstract : The aim of the study was to analyse the outcome and function after anterior cruciate ligament(ACL) reconstruction using different evaluation systems. Special emphasis was placed on thesagittal knee laxity as measured with the KT-1000 arthrometer. READ MORE

  2. 2. Kinematics and laxity in the knee, before and after Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction. Evaluation using dynamic and static radiostereometric analysis

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Jonas Isberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ACL; KT-1000; early reconstruction; early extension; kinematics; laxity; RSA;

    Abstract : Introduction: Whether full active and passive extension training, started immediately after an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction, will increase the post-operative A-P laxity of the knee has been the subject of discussion. For many years, many protocols have included full extension with full weight bearing after an ACL reconstruction. READ MORE

  3. 3. Rehabilitation following bone-patellar tendon-bone graft ACL reconstruction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine and Surgery

    Author : Christina Mikkelsen; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ACL injury; ACL reconstruction; ACL rehabilitation; Anterior knee laxity; Closed kinetic chain; Extension deficit; Functional outcome score; Gender; Hyperextension brace; Isokinetic open kinetic chain; KOOS; KT-1000 arthrometer; Patello femoral pain; Personality characteristics; Physical activity; Quadriceps torque; Range of motion;

    Abstract : The overall purpose of this Thesis was to improve treatment and rehabilitation after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with bone-patellar tendon-bone graft. Study I: The purpose of this study was to evaluate and compare closed kinetic chain (CKC) training and a combination of closed and open kinetic chain (OKC) quadriceps exercises following ACL reconstruction on anterior knee laxity and isokinetic muscle torque.

  4. 4. Knee joint laxity and kinematics after anterior cruciate ligament rupture roentgen stereophotogrammetric and clinical evaluation before and after treatment

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Håkan Jonsson; Umeå universitet.; [1993]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior cruciate ligament; Kinematics; Anterior-posterior laxity; Surgery; Roentgen stereophotogrammetric analysis; Muscle strength; Functional tests;

    Abstract : Rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) increases anterior-posterior (AP) laxity. The treatment aims to reduce or teach the patient to control this instability. Altered kinematics due to absent ligament function may result in knee arthrosis. This study evaluated the clinical and functional results of reconstructive surgery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Anterior cruciate ligament injury. Results after reconstruction in terms of function, postoperative pain and kinematics

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Sveinbjörn Brandsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior cruciate ligament; reconstruction; bone-patellar tendon-bone graft; post-operative pain; morphine; pain reduction; kinematics; radiostereometric analysis; RSA.;

    Abstract : The aim of this study was to evaluate the functional and objective outcome after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction using bone-patellar tendon-bone grafts. Other main objectives were to evaluate postoperative pain, pain reduction and knee kinematics after anterior cruciate ligament injury and reconstruction. READ MORE
