BACKGROUND The geometry of the tibial plateau is complex and asymmetric. Previous research has characterized subject-to-subject differences in the tibial plateau geometry in the sagittal plane on the basis of a single parameter, the posterior slope. We hypothesized that (1) there are large subject-to-subject variations in terms of slopes, the depth of(More)
Videos of sports injuries can potentially provide valuable information on non-contact ACL injuries. However, only the un-validated simple visual inspection approach has, so far, been used. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to test the accuracy and precision of researchers in estimating kinematics from video sequences of situations that typically lead(More)
The incidence of noncontact anterior cruciate ligament injuries in young to middle-aged athletes remains high. Despite early diagnosis and appropriate operative and nonoperative treatments, posttraumatic degenerative arthritis may develop. In a meeting in Atlanta, Georgia (January 2005), sponsored by the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, a(More)

I njuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) of the knee are common in athletes and have serious sequelae, including increased risk of early-onset posttraumatic osteoarthritis regardless of the treatment administered. 16 Injury rates as high as 2.8 and 3.2 injuries per 10 000 athlete exposures have been reported in women's collegiate sports. 17 The(More)
Women are more prone to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury during cutting sports than men. The purpose of this study was to examine knee kinematic and ground reaction forces (GRF) differences between genders during cutting. Male and female athletes performed cutting trials while force platform and video data were recorded (180 Hz). Differences (p < .(More)
UNLABELLED A femoral load-cell was installed in twelve fresh-frozen knee specimens from cadavera, to measure the resultant force at the femoral origin of the posterior cruciate ligament during a series of tibial-loading tests. The posterior cruciate ligament was removed, and a ten-millimeter-wide bone-patellar ligament-bone graft was inserted. The knee was(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the degree to which concussion history and postconcussive symptoms are associated with cortical morphology among male hockey players. STUDY DESIGN Male subjects (n = 29), ranging in age from 14 to 23 years (mean 17.8 years), were recruited from preparatory school and collegiate ice hockey teams and underwent neuroimaging and(More)
We examined the effect of knee osteoarthritis on the rate of torque development (RTD) of the knee extensors in older adults with advanced-stage knee osteoarthritis (OA; n=15) and recreationally-active controls (n=15) of similar age, sex and health status, as well as the relationship between RTD and the size and contractility of single muscle fibers. OA(More)
