The medial collateral ligament is the most commonly injured knee ligament. Valgus stress radiographs are reported to be an effective way to quantify the medial compartment opening. However, most of the techniques require the presence of a physician in the radiograph room to apply a manual valgus stress force, and can only be performed in 1 knee at a time. These techniques, although extremely effective, increase radiation exposure to physicians, are time consuming, and require additional radiographs to compare the side-to-side difference...

Morquio A syndrome (mucopolysaccharidosis IVA, MPS IVA) is a lysosomal storage disease caused by a deficiency of N-acetylgalactosamine-6-sulfate sulfatase, resulting in systemic accumulation of the partially degraded glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), keratan sulfate and chondroitin-6-sulfate. The accumulation of these GAGs leads to distinguishing features as skeletal dysplasia with disproportionate dwarfism, short neck, kyphoscoliosis, pectus carinatum, tracheal obstruction, coxa valga, genu valgum, and joint laxity...

BACKGROUND: Limited information in basic science and clinical trials exists to determine if ligament healing may be accelerated with the use of biological adjuvants, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). However, there has been widespread acceptance of PRP for use in clinical practice, despite an inadequate understanding of its biological mechanism of action. PURPOSE: To determine whether a single dose of PRP could accelerate ligament healing and correspondingly improve histological characteristics and biomechanical properties when injected immediately postoperatively into the injured medial collateral ligament (MCL) of New Zealand White rabbits...

Knee laxity may be impacted by rupture of the anterolateral knee ligament (ALL). The goal of this study was to measure tibial translation and rotation as a function of the status of the ALL and the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). Five pairs of fresh frozen cadaver specimens were analyzed. The knee was positioned in 20° flexion. Calibrated posteroanterior forces and internal/external torques were successively applied. Anterior tibial translation and total internal/external tibial rotation were measured with a navigation system...

PURPOSE: Knee ligamentous trauma and the following pain is one of the most prevalent athletic injuries. Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation is one of the conservative approaches in controlling pain which is low cost, noninvasive, and safe with low complications. Our purpose was to study whether transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) could help athletes perform better during the first phase of rehabilitation (0-4 weeks) after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery and until the follow-up...

Knee ligament sprain is one of the most common orthopaedic and sports injuries. Knee stability and movement coordination impairments can be improved by physical therapists during nonoperative and operative management. Implementation recommendations from clinical practice guidelines (CPGs), such as the revised guidelines on knee ligament sprains published in the November 2017 issue of JOSPT, can help to reduce unwarranted variation in clinical physical therapy practice, support evidence-informed practice, and add value at the point of care...

Knee laxity, defined as the net translation or rotation of the tibia relative to the femur in a given direction in response to an applied load, is highly variable from person to person. High levels of knee laxity as assessed during routine clinical exams are associated with first-time ligament injury and graft reinjury following reconstruction. During laxity exams, ligaments carry force to resist the applied load; however, relationships between intersubject variations in knee laxity and variations in how ligaments carry force as the knee moves through its passive envelope of motion, which we refer to as ligament engagement, are not well established...

We studied whether the time-varying forces that control unstable foot-ground interactions provide insight into the neural control of dynamic leg function. Twenty elite (10F, 26.4±3.5yrs) and 20 recreational (10F, 24.8±2.4yrs) athletes used an isolated leg to maximally compress a slender spring designed to buckle at low forces while seated. The foot forces during the compression at the edge of instability quantify the maximal sensorimotor ability to control dynamic foot-ground interactions. Using the nonlinear analysis technique of attractor reconstruction, we characterized the spatial (interquartile range IQR) and geometric (trajectory length TL, volume V, and sum of edge lengths SE) features of the dynamical behavior of those force time series...

In finite element (FE) models knee ligaments can represented either by a group of one-dimensional springs, or by three-dimensional continuum elements based on segmentations. Continuum models closer approximate the anatomy, and facilitate ligament wrapping, while spring models are computationally less expensive. The mechanical properties of ligaments can be based on literature, or adjusted specifically for the subject. In the current study we investigated the effect of ligament modelling strategy on the predictive capability of FE models of the human knee joint...

Background The incidence of knee ligament injury is increasing and represents a significant cost to healthcare providers. Current interventions include tissue grafts, suture repair and non-surgical management. These techniques have demonstrated good patient outcomes but have been associated graft rejection, infection, long term immobilization and reduced joint function. The limitations of traditional management strategies have prompted research into tissue engineering of knee ligaments. Objective This paper aims to evaluate whether tissue engineering of knee ligaments offers a viable alternative in the clinical management of knee ligament injuries...

PURPOSE: The cruciate retaining (CR) design was developed to obtain knee stability with the natural posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) in total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, the preservation of the PCL can limit knee exposure and increase the technical challenge during the procedure. Knee exposure is easily achieved under the released PCL, and we hypothesized that the PCL naturally repairs after release, thus re-establishing the posterior stability. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to evaluate the varying of the posterior stability after the PCL-released CR TKA over time...

BACKGROUND: Tibial plateau fractures account for a small portion of all fractures; however, these fractures can pose a surgical challenge when occurring concomitantly with ligament injuries. PURPOSE/HYPOTHESIS: The purpose of this study was to compare 2-year outcomes of soft tissue reconstruction with or without a concomitant tibial plateau fracture and open reduction internal fixation. We hypothesized that patients with a concomitant tibial plateau fracture at the time of soft tissue surgery would have inferior outcomes compared with patients without an associated tibial plateau fracture...
