The current study analyzed changes in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and lateral collateral ligament stress as a result of mechanical varus. In an exploratory pilot study, progressive mechanical varus was introduced to a male finite element model of the lower limb at different knee flexion angles. Nine situations were analyzed (combinations of 0°, 30°, and 60° knee flexion and 0°, 5°, and 10° varus). The ACL stress was measured via changes in section force, von Mises stress, and fiber stress… Expand
Effects of high tibia osteotomy on knee ligamentous forces during gait: A finite element study
It is generally accepted that the high tibial osteotomy (HTO) improves the stress distribution on the articular cartilage of varus knees in the standing posture. The effects of HTO during dynamicExpand
Osseous valgus alignment and posteromedial ligament complex deficiency lead to increased ACL graft forces
TLDR
Osseous valgus alignment led to significantly increased forces on ACL grafts under axial joint compression, which was even further enhanced, when the PMC was deficient. Expand
The Role of High Tibial Osteotomy in ACL Reconstruction in Knees with Coronal and Sagittal Plane Deformity
TLDR
The use of high tibial osteotomy for deformity correction creates a more stable knee for ACL reconstruction and has been shown to have good outcomes with regard to post-operative pain, stability, satisfaction scores, and function. Expand
Knee Malignment: Is There a Role for Correction in Primary ACLR?
TLDR
Clinical series have demonstrated encouraging results following either valgus-producing or slope-reducing proximal tibial osteotomy, although largely in the setting of revision ACL reconstruction, with lower rates of graft failure and improved patient-reported outcomes. Expand
[Update on Failure Analysis of Implants in ACL Surgery: Technical Failure or Fate?]
TLDR
In summary, a substantiated failure analysis is required to initiate specific and individualised therapy - not only in the case of ACL rerupture. Expand
Technical Considerations in Revision Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Reconstruction for Operative Techniques in Orthopaedics.
TLDR
As the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction continues to increase, the rate of revision surgery continues to climb, the surgeon must communicate with the patient openly regarding the implications of revision ACL surgery and the treatment plan should be developed in a shared fashion between the surgeon and the patient.

Residual instability after reconstruction surgery of the anterior cruciate ligament . What are we missing ?
128 ABSTRACT Despite improvement of the reconstruction techniques of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), a number of patients continue to present residual rotational instability and pivot shiftExpand
DETERMINATION OF THE STRESS OF ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT IN VARIOUS DEGREES OF KNEE FLEXION, COMPARISON OF NORMAL AND RECONSTRUCTED LIGAMENT
TLDR
This poster presents a probabilistic procedure to select theterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments of the medial collateral area of the knee for use as collateral ligament anchors in athletes with anterior cruciated knee injuries. Expand
The Impact of Osseous Malalignment and Realignment Procedures in Knee Ligament Surgery: A Systematic Review of the Clinical Evidence
TLDR
In cases of complex knee instability, the 3-dimensional osseous alignment of the knee should be considered (eg, mechanical weightbearing line and tibial slope) and changes in the mechanical axis should be considering in all cases of instability accompanied by early unicompartmental osteoarthritis. Expand
Revision ACL-Based Multiple-Ligament Knee Surgery
TLDR
This chapter will discuss the many issues with revision ACL reconstruction and offer tips to address revisions with collateral ligament and posteromedial/posterolateral corner involvement. Expand

Stress changes of lateral collateral ligament at different knee flexion with or without displaced movements: a 3-dimensional finite element analysis.
TLDR
LCL is vulnerable to varus motion in almost all knee bending positions and susceptible to anterior-posterior tibial translation or internal-external rotation at early 30 degree of knee flexions. Expand
The effect of weightbearing and external loading on anterior cruciate ligament strain.
TLDR
Comparisons of ACL strain response under weightbearing and non-weightbearing conditions and in combination with three externally applied loadings have important clinical ramifications in the development of rehabilitation protocols following ACL reconstruction since weightbearing has been previously thought to provide a protective mechanism to the healing graft.

TLDR
This study supports the clinical observation that untreated grade III posterolateral structure injuries contribute to anterior cruciate ligament graft failure by allowing higher forces to stress the graft. Expand

TLDR
The lateral approach technique appears to provide a promising clinical outcome in patients undergoing PCL reconstruction, and shows remarkably higher stresses and forces on the interface between the replaced PCL and the killer turn in both the numerical and cadaveric studies. Expand
Failure locus of the anterior cruciate ligament: 3D finite element analysis
TLDR
The results indicated that varus and valgus movements were more dominant to the ACL injury than femoral rotation and could be used to develop training programmes focused on the avoidance of the described combination of movements which may lead to ACL injury. Expand
The Effect of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury on Knee Joint Function under a Simulated Muscle Load: A Three-Dimensional Computational Simulation
TLDR
A 3D computational knee model was constructed using the magnetic resonance images and biomechanical experimental data of the same cadaveric human knee specimen to predict knee motion, ligament forces, and contact pressure in response to a simulated quadriceps force when the knee was ACL deficient. Expand
The effect of isolated popliteus tendon complex injury on graft force in anterior cruciate ligament reconstructed knees
TLDR
It is hypothesised that, under external tibial torque, the ACL graft will experience a significant increase in force, in knees with PC injury compared to the intact PC condition, and this study found this to be true. Expand
The reproducibility and repeatability of varus stress radiographs in the assessment of isolated fibular collateral ligament and grade-III posterolateral knee injuries. An in vitro biomechanical study.
TLDR
Varus stress radiographs appear to provide an objective and reproducible measure of lateral compartment gapping that should prove useful for the diagnosis, management, and postoperative follow-up of patients with fibular collateral ligament and posterolateral knee injuries. Expand
The anterior cruciate ligament-deficient knee with varus alignment
TLDR
The fundamental assumption of this paper is that any combination of conditions leading to higher medial joint forces is associated with factors leading to more rapid degeneration of the medial compartment in patients with ACL deficiency, varus deformity, and lax lateral ligaments. Expand
