The purpose of this study was to clarify meniscal displacement and cartilage-meniscus contact behavior in a full extension position and a deep knee flexion position. We also studied whether the meniscal translation pattern correlated with the tibiofemoral cartilage contact kinematics. Magnetic resonance (MR) images were acquired at both positions for 10 subjects using a conventional MR scanner. Subjects achieved a flexion angle averaging 139 degrees +/- 3 degrees. Both medial and lateral… CONTINUE READING
