BACKGROUND Little information is available on the kinematics of the normal knee in deep flexion. The purpose of this study was to use magnetic resonance imaging to analyze the patellofemoral articulation in deep flexion. METHODS Axial scans were made of the patellofemoral joint of twenty healthy Japanese volunteers with the knee in approximately 90 degrees of flexion, in maximum active flexion (mean [and standard deviation], 140 degrees +/- 10 degrees ), and in maximum passive flexion (mean… CONTINUE READING
