The pivot shift test is a commonly used clinical examination by orthopedic surgeons to evaluate knee function following injury. However, the test can only be graded subjectively by the examiner. Therefore, the purpose of this study is to develop software for a computer tablet to quantify anterior translation of the lateral knee compartment during the pivot(More)
PURPOSE Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the most current diagnostic imaging procedure for suspected ACL injuries. It is an accurate, highly sensitive and specific tool for the diagnosis of ACL tears, graft tears and associated injuries. However, it can also be used for various other aspects of anatomic ACL reconstruction. METHODS Special sequences as(More)
PURPOSE Although various kinematic measurements with advanced technology have been used for quantitative evaluation of the pivot shift test, there is no clinically available quantification method of the pivot shift test. The purpose was to describe a novel image analysis technique for quantitative assessment of the pivot shift test using universally(More)
PURPOSE To describe the "three-portal technique for anatomical ACL single- or double-bundle reconstruction" and the arthroscopic viewing improvement provided by this technique. METHODS A "high" anterolateral portal was placed 1 cm lateral to the patellar tendon and the most inferior portion of the portal at the level of the inferior pole of the patella. A(More)
