  3. 3. Predictors of Complications after Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

    Author : Daniel Andernord; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear is a serious knee injury that frequently affects young individuals active in soccer, alpine skiing, handball and basketball. Regardless of treatment, an ACL injury is associated with an increased risk of complications in the short and long term, such as meniscal and chondral injuries or a need to undergo surgery on the injured knee or the contralateral knee.

  4. 4. Dynamic knee stability after anterior cruciate ligament injury : Emphasis on rehabilitation

    Author : Sofi Tagesson (Sonesson); Joanna Kvist; Birgitta Öberg; Suzanne Werner; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rehabilitation; anterior cruciate ligament; knee joint; joint instability; muscle strength; electromyography; ACL reconstruction; Physiotherapy; Sjukgymnastik fysioterapi;

    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

  5. 5. Rehabilitation and Evaluation after Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury : Function, Stability and Postural Control

    Author : Marketta Henriksson (Lysholm); Gunnar Németh; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Traditionally, the success of treatment after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury has been judged from the recovery of muscle strength and knee range of motion (ROM), but also from the static knee stability after ACL reconstruction. However, since the sensory role of the ACL and surrounding tissues for the functional stability of the knee has been documented, the measurement of proprioceptive function related to knee stability is likely to become important in this evaluation.
