PURPOSE Our purpose was to evaluate the effect of meniscectomy and meniscal allograft transplant on anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and knee biomechanics. METHODS A differential variable reluctance transducer was placed in the ACL of 10 human cadaveric knees to record strain. Tibial displacement from a neutral reference was recorded relative to the position of the femur. Testing was performed at 30 degrees, 60 degrees, and 90 degrees of knee flexion. Six cycles of anterior-posterior loads… CONTINUE READING
