  2. 2. Generalized Joint Hypermobility and Specific Knee Laxity: Aspects of influence on the Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injured Knee

    Author : David Sundemo; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Anterior cruciate ligament; Knee injury; Knee laxity; Generalized joint hypermobility;

    Abstract : Injury to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most serious sports-related injuries, with significant short- and long-term morbidity. Generalized joint hypermobility (GJH) and specific knee laxity are factors that have been associated with an increased risk of ACL injury and inferior postoperative outcome, but the state of the evidence is unclear and the available information is limited.
