BACKGROUND There is no consensus about flexion angle of the knee at the time of graft fixation in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. PURPOSE To evaluate the effect of flexion angle at the final graft fixation on the positional relationship as well as the load between femur and tibia. STUDY DESIGN Controlled laboratory study. METHODS Six intact cadaveric knees were passively flexed and extended under 6 degrees of freedom with the robotic system developed in our laboratory, while… CONTINUE READING
