The Influence of Meniscal and Anterolateral Capsular Injury on Knee Laxity in Patients With Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries
Background: The role of the anterolateral capsule (ALC) as a secondary restraint to quantitative rotatory laxity of patients with an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury is currently debated.Expand

An original clinical methodology for non-invasive assessment of pivot-shift test
Even if pivot-shift (PS) test has been clinically used to specifically detect anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, the main problem in using this combined test has been yet associated with theExpand

Pivot‐shift test: Analysis and quantification of knee laxity parameters using a navigation system
Lachman, drawer, and pivot‐shift (PS) tests are important in the assessment of ACL reconstruction. The goal of this work was to analyze the reliability of the PS test using a navigation system,Expand
