The influence of anterior displacement of the tibial tuberosity on patellofemoral biomechanics

Abstract

The effect of anterior displacement of the tibial tuberosity at distances of 5, 10, 15 and 20 mm on the mechanical behaviour of the patellofemoral joint has been investigated using a mathematical model, which describes movements and forces in the sagittal plane. Anatomical parameters for the model were obtained from five normal autopsy knees. The results… (More)
