Arthroscopic cartilage indentation and cartilage lesions of anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knees.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knee is prone to osteoarthritis and meniscus lesions. Very little, however, is known about the biomechanical properties of articular cartilage in anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knees. PURPOSE To evaluate biomechanical and macroscopical cartilage changes in the knee joint with respect to the time… (More)
