Intra-articular reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament. An experimental study of length changes in different ligament reconstructions.

An anatomic model was developed to test different types of intra-articular anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions. Four cadaver knees were tested in an identical fashion. In each knee 12 different positions were tested. The results indicate that over-the-top repair is not suitable for anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction from a mechanical… CONTINUE READING
