BACKGROUND While the Lachman and pivot shift tests have been used clinically for decades to assess the anterior cruciate ligament, the relationship between the two has undergone limited experimental study. The goal of this study was to evaluate biomechanical relationships between the Lachman and pivot shift tests in anterior cruciate ligament-deficient and reconstructed knees. METHODS Knee kinematics during simulated pivot-shift testing and anteroposterior knee laxities were measured in… CONTINUE READING
