PURPOSE Various techniques are used to produce the pivot shift phenomenon after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. In particular, the amount of applied axial tibial torque varies among examiners. Thus, the objective of this study was to determine the effect of the magnitude and direction of axial tibial torque in combination with valgus torque on the resulting knee kinematics during such a simulated pivot shift test. TYPE OF STUDY This was a biomechanical study that used cadaveric knees… CONTINUE READING
