PURPOSE Recent in vitro research has suggested that anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction does not restore control of tibial rotation. The purpose of this study was to explore these findings in vivo and investigate rotational knee stability during landing and subsequent pivoting. Such an activity places higher demands on the knee, almost similar to those found during high-level sports. TYPE OF STUDY Case control series study. METHODS We assessed 11 patients who had undergone ACL… CONTINUE READING
