This study investigated how knee flexion angle affects the appearance of the rupture surface of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) using rabbit knees. Specimens were failed at flexion angles of 45 degrees and 90 degrees at displacement rates of 10 and 500 mm/min. Video recordings and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) studied the appearance of the rupture… CONTINUE READING
