An experimental evaluation of isometric placement for extraarticular reconstructions of the anterior cruciate ligament.

We measured the changes in distance between the tibial and femoral attachment points of the extraarticular ACL substitute during knee motion. To measure the changes in distance continuously and directly, a computer-assisted experimental system was developed using an electrolyte-in-rubber transducer. We used 6 cadaveric knees to measure changes in distance… CONTINUE READING
