The patella ligament insertion angle influences quadriceps usage during walking of anterior cruciate ligament deficient patients.

Abstract

Following ACL injury a reduction in the peak knee flexion moment during walking (thought to be created by a decrease of quadriceps contraction) has been described as an adaptation to reduce anterior tibial translation (ATT) relative to the femur. However, the amount of ATT caused by quadriceps contraction is influenced by the patellar ligament insertion… (More)
