Postoperative time dependent tibiofemoral articular cartilage contact kinematics during step-up after ACL reconstruction.

This study was to investigate the in vivo tibiofemoral cartilage contact locations before and after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction at 6 and 36 months. Ten patients with unilateral ACL injury were included. A step-up motion was analyzed using a combined magnetic resonance modeling and dual fluoroscopic imaging techniques. The preoperative (i… CONTINUE READING
