In six intact cadaver knees, we measured how the distance between six selected points in and around the femoral and tibial attachment area of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) changed with knee flexion. After complete removal of the PCL, 2-mm drill holes were made at the selected points. Each femoral point was measured against each tibial point using a heavy string that was passed through the drill holes. The distal end of the string was attached to a measuring unit. The changes in… CONTINUE READING
