Injury initiation and progression in the anterior cruciate ligament.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To develop a theoretical model to identify mechanisms by which total and partial tears of the anterior cruciate ligament could occur. DESIGN: A sagittal-plane knee model was used to investigate anterior cruciate ligament injury due to excessive anterior tibial translation. The ligament was modelled as an ordered array of fibres linking femur and tibia. BACKGROUND: Despite years of research, the detailed biomechanics of anterior cruciate ligament injury is not well understood. METHO...
