Association between abnormal kinematics and degenerative change in knees of people with chronic anterior cruciate ligament deficiency: A magnetic resonance imaging study

Scarvell, Jennifer M; Smith, Paul; Refshauge, Kathryn M; Galloway, Howard R; Woods, Kevin


Progressive degeneration of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) deficient knee may be partly due to chondral trauma at the time of ACL rupture and repeat episodes of subluxation, but also due to aberrant kinematics altering the wear pattern at the tibiofemoral interface. The hypothesis that altered kinematics, represented by the tibiofemoral contact pattern, would be associated with articular cartilage degeneration in ACL-deficient knees was tested in a cross-sectional study of 23 subjects...[Show more]
