OBJECTIVE Utilizing a rabbit anterior cruciate ligament model of ligamentous subfailure injury, biomechanical properties of injured ligament treated with radiofrequency energy were evaluated. It was hypothesized that an injured ligament treated with radiofrequency probe would demonstrate restoration of biomechanical properties lost through injury. BACKGROUND Radiofrequency probe, thermal treatment has been utilized in the clinical setting to address joint instability caused by ligamentous… CONTINUE READING
