Static anterior-posterior (AP) laxity is one of the commonly used criteria in selecting patients for cruciate ligament reconstructions, but in reality dynamic AP laxity plays a more important role. The aim of this in vivo study was to compare the sagittal translation of the knee during active and passive motion, signifying dynamic AP laxity, with static AP laxity in healthy subjects (controls) and patients with anterior cruciate ligament deficiency. The sagittal plane knee translations were… CONTINUE READING
