Reconstruction does not reduce tibial translation in the cruciate-deficient knee an in vivo study.

Abstract:

We have assessed the effectiveness of reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) in reducing functional tibial translation (TT). The gait of 11 ACL-deficient patients was studied using Vicon equipment before and after surgery. Measurements of the angle between the patellar tendon and the long axis of the tibia were obtained in order to calculate TT in the sagittal plane relative to the uninjured limb during standing and walking. Before surgery, patients did not show abnormal TT on...
