Blunt injuries to the patellofemoral joint resulting from transarticular loading are influenced by impactor energy and mass.


Various impact models have been used to study the injury mechanics of blunt trauma to diarthrodial joints. The current study was designed to study the relationship between impactor energy and mass on impact biomechanics and injury modalities for a specific test condition and protocol. A total of 48 isolated canine knees were impacted once with one of three… (More)
