Stresses and strains in the medial meniscus of an ACL deficient knee under anterior loading: a finite element analysis with image-based experimental validation.

Abstract

The menisci are believed to play a stabilizing role in the ACL-deficient knee, and are known to be at risk for degradation in the chronically unstable knee. Much of our understanding of this behavior is based on ex vivo experiments or clinical studies in which we must infer the function of the menisci from external measures of knee motion.
