    Abstract : Anterior cruciate ligament injury leads to increased sagittal tibial translation, and perceptions of instability and low confidence in the knee joint are common. Many patients have remaining problems despite treatment and are forced to lower their activity level and prematurely end their career in sports. READ MORE

  2. 7. 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
