The role of the patellar tendon angle and patellar flexion angle in the interpretation of sagittal plane kinematics of the knee after knee arthroplasty: A modelling analysis

Abstract:
Background Many different measures have been used to describe knee kinematics. This study investigated the changes of two measures, the patellar tendon angle and the patellar flexion angle, in response to variations in the geometry of the knee due to surgical technique or implant design. Methods A mathematical model was developed to calculate the equilibrium position of the extensor mechanism for a particular tibiofemoral position. Calculating the position o... Expand abstract
