The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of individual characteristics on rotational knee laxity in healthy participants. Our second aim was to verify whether the contralateral knee of patients with a non-contact ACL injury presents greater rotational knee laxity than a healthy control group. Sixty healthy participants and 23 patients having(More)
The aim of this study was to quantify sagittal and rotational knee laxity profiles taking into account individual influencing factors. Linear regression models were used to determine which individual characteristics (age, height, body mass and sex) influenced the outcome in a group of 104 healthy subjects. The standardized residuals were used as(More)
BACKGROUND Excessive physiological anterior and rotational knee laxity is thought to be a risk factor for noncontact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries and inferior reconstruction outcomes, but no thresholds have been established to identify patients with increased laxity. PURPOSE (1) To determine if the healthy contralateral knees of ACL-injured(More)
This study analysed whether associating the side-to-side difference in displacement and the slope of the load–displacement curve of anterior and rotational knee laxity measurements would improve the instrumental diagnosis of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) ruptures and help to detect different types of ACL tears. Anterior and rotational knee laxity was(More)
