Sanaz Shanbehzadeh, Mohammad Ali Mohseni Bandpei, Fatemeh Ehsani
PURPOSE: This review compared knee muscle activity between ACL-deficient (ACLD) patients and healthy controls during gait, to find out whether the available electromyography (EMG) studies support Quadriceps (Q-ceps) inhibition or hamstring facilitation during gait in ACLD patients. METHOD: A systematic review was conducted to retrieve the EMG studies of knee muscles during gait in ACLD patients. Cochrane library, PubMed, Medline, Ovid, CINAHL and Science Direct databases were searched entries from 1995 through October 2014 using the terms "anterior cruciate ligament" OR "ACL", "electromyography" Or "EMG" "gait" Or "walking"...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine the predictor factors concerning the lower extremity alignment in non-contact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries among male athletes. METHODS: In a retrospective study, the unilateral navicular drop, the ankle dorsiflexion range of motion (ROM), internal tibia torsion, knee genu recurvatum, quadriceps angle, hip internal and external rotation ROM and hip anteversion were measured in 53 subjects with complete ACL injury and compared with these accepted standard values...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

Poor knee alignment is associated with increased loading of the joints, ligaments and tendons, and may increase the risk of injury. The study purpose was to compare differences in knee kinematics between basketball and floorball players during a vertical drop jump (VDJ) task. We wanted to investigate whether basketball players, whose sport includes frequent jump-landings, exhibited better knee control compared with floorball players, whose sport involves less jumping. Complete data was obtained from 173 basketball and 141 floorball players...

PURPOSE: Despite significant rehabilitation, many athletes experience protracted weakness and faulty mechanics after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR). Clinical tests performed early in rehabilitation, which predict knee mechanics at return-to-sport, are virtually unknown and critically needed to guide clinical decision making. The purpose of this study is to determine if quadriceps strength, Y balance anterior (YB-A) reach distance, and single-leg step-down test performance (SLSD) conducted 3 months post-ACLR are predictive of knee flexion excursion (KFLEX) and knee extensor moment (KEM) during running 6 months post-ACLR...

BACKGROUND: Effective pain management after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction improves patient satisfaction and function. PURPOSE: To collect and evaluate the available evidence from randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on pain control after ACL reconstruction. STUDY DESIGN: Systematic review. METHODS: A systematic literature review was performed using PubMed, Medline, Google Scholar, UpToDate, Cochrane Reviews, CINAHL, and Scopus following PRISMA guidelines (July 2014)...

RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
Matthew T Rasmussen, Marco Nitri, Brady T Williams, Samuel G Moulton, Raphael Serra Cruz, Grant J Dornan, Mary T Goldsmith, Robert F LaPrade
BACKGROUND: Recent investigations have described the structural and functional behavior of the anterolateral ligament (ALL) of the knee through pull-apart and isolated sectioning studies. However, the secondary stabilizing role of the ALL in the setting of a complete anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear has not been fully defined for common simulated clinical examinations, such as the pivot-shift, anterior drawer, and internal rotation tests. HYPOTHESIS: Combined sectioning of the ALL and ACL would lead to increased internal rotation and increased axial plane translation during a pivot-shift test when compared with isolated sectioning of the ACL...

BACKGROUND: Prospective studies have reported that abnormal movement patterns at the trunk, hip, and knee are associated with noncontact anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. Impaired hip strength may underlie these abnormal movement patterns, suggesting that diminished hip strength may increase the risk of noncontact ACL injury. PURPOSE: To determine whether baseline hip strength predicts future noncontact ACL injury in athletes. STUDY DESIGN: Case-control study; Level of evidence, 3...

BACKGROUND: Factors and details regarding return to play in elite, collegiate female soccer athletes after an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury and reconstruction have not been well studied. PURPOSE: To evaluate return to play among collegiate female soccer players, specifically examining the effect of surgical and individual athlete characteristics on the return-to-play rate. STUDY DESIGN: Descriptive epidemiology study. METHODS: Sports medicine and athletic training staff at institutions from the National Collegiate Athletic Association Southeastern Conference (SEC) were contacted to request participation in the study...

BACKGROUND: Laboratory-based measures provide an accurate method to identify risk factors for anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury; however, these methods are generally prohibitive to the wider community. Screening methods that can be completed in a field or clinical setting may be more applicable for wider community use. Examination of field-based screening methods for ACL injury risk can aid in identifying the most applicable method(s) for use in these settings. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this systematic review was to evaluate and compare field-based screening methods for ACL injury risk to determine their efficacy of use in wider community settings...
