BACKGROUND In spite of ongoing prevention developments, anterior cruciate ligament injury rates and the associated sex-disparity have remained, suggesting an incomplete understanding of the injury mechanism. While both fatigue and decision making are known in isolation to directly impact anterior cruciate ligament injury risk, their combined manifestations(More)
PURPOSE Using finite element (FE) computer model simulation, we compared the mechanical characteristics of the mandible after bilateral sagittal split ramus osteotomy (BSSRO) through the use of 2 different techniques to stabilize the osteotomy. MATERIALS AND METHODS Based on the reconstructed geometry from computed tomography scans of dry adult skull with(More)
BACKGROUND Female neuromuscular control during dynamic landings is considered central to their increased ACL injury risk relative to males. There is limited insight, however, into the neuromuscular parameters governing this risk, which may hinder prevention success. This study targeted a new screenable and potentially trainable neuromuscular risk factor.(More)
BACKGROUND A potential source of patellofemoral pain, one of the most common problems of the knee, is believed to be altered patellofemoral kinematics due to a force imbalance around the knee. Although no definitive etiology for this imbalance has been found, a weak vastus medialis is considered a primary factor. Therefore, this study's purpose was to(More)
OBJECTIVES To establish an in vivo, normative patellofemoral (PF) cartilage contact mechanics database acquired during voluntary muscle control using a novel, dynamic, magnetic resonance (MR) imaging-based, computational methodology and validate the contact mechanics sensitivity to the known sub-millimeter methodological accuracies. DESIGN Dynamic cine(More)
The aims of this study were to evaluate the concurrent validity and reliability of a low-dose biplanar X-ray system (Ld-BPR) for the measurement of femoral anteversion (FA) by comparing Ld-BPR-based three-dimensional measures with CT-scan-based measures and to assess the discriminative ability of this method in children with cerebral palsy. Fifty dry femora(More)
INTRODUCTION Patellofemoral (PF) pain syndrome (PFPS) is one of the most common problems of the knee, characterized by idiopathic anterior knee pain aggravated by deep knee flexion, prolonged sitting, and repetitive flexion/extension. The most widely accepted theory in regards to the source of PF pain is that a force imbalance around the knee leads to PF(More)
INTRODUCTION: Patellofemoral (PF) pain syndrome (PFPS) is one of the most common problems of the knee. A potential source of this pain is a force imbalance around the knee leading pathological PF kinematic (maltracking). In turn, this causes elevated joint contact stresses, which ultimately results in PF pain. The source of this force imbalance is still(More)

Patellofemoral osteoarthritis and its potential precursor patellofemoral pain syndrome (PFPS) are common, costly, and debilitating diseases. PFPS has been shown to be associated with altered patellofemoral joint mechanics; however, an actual variation in joint contact stresses has not been established due to challenges in accurately quantifying in vivo(More)
