BACKGROUND In a noticeable percentage of patients anterolateral rotational instabilities (ALRI) remain after an isolated ACL reconstruction. Those instabilities may occur due to an insufficiently directed damage of anterolateral structures that is often associated with ACL ruptures. Recent publications describe an anatomical structure, termed the(More)
The aim of this study was the development of a process for filling the pores of a β-tricalcium phosphate ceramic with interconnected porosity with an alginate hydrogel. For filling of the ceramics, solutions of alginate hydrogel precursors with suitable viscosity were chosen as determined by rheometry. For loading of the porous ceramics with the gel the(More)
Non-invasive evaluation of knee joint laxities is crucial in the diagnostics of post-traumatic knee injuries such as ACL ruptures. Current clinical standard and daily routine for orthopaedic surgeons are for instance the Lachman-Test or the Anterior Drawer-Test in the evaluation of knee joint displacement. Those tests, while quickly and easily performed,(More)
