We studied how the location of an articulated external fixator, the EBI-Orthofix (EBI Corp, Persippany, NJ), affects the kinematics of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)-deficient knee. Ten unembalmed cadaver whole lower limbs were randomly divided into two groups of five limbs each: (1) fixator hinge located near the average knee flexion axis (the anatomic position group); and (2) fixator hinge located distal to the joint line and posterior to the flexion axis (the fibular styloid position… CONTINUE READING
