The incidence of meniscal tears in the chronically anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knee is increased, particularly in the medial meniscus because it performs an important function in limiting knee motion. We evaluated the role of the medial meniscus in stabilizing the anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knee and hypothesized that the resultant force in the meniscus is significantly elevated in the anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knee. To test this hypothesis, we employed a robotic… CONTINUE READING
