Testing was performed on nine intact knees, on five knees after medial meniscectomy, on three knees after isolated section of the anterior cruciate ligament, and on eight knees after both excision of the medial meniscus and section of the anterior cruciate ligament. The induced anterior-posterior… CONTINUE READING
