Posterior Medial Meniscus Root Tears Potentiate the Effect of Increased Tibial Slope on Anterior Cruciate Ligament Graft Forces


Abstract

Increased posterior tibial slope and posterior medial meniscus root tears increase the force experienced by the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and predispose patients to higher rates of primary ACL injury or ACL graft failure after an ACL reconstruction (ACLR). However, the interplay among sagittal plane tibial slope, medial meniscus […]

Lateral Posterior Tibial Slope in Male and Female Athletes Sustaining Contact Versus Noncontact Anterior Cruciate Ligament Tears

Background

Lateral posterior tibial slope (PTS) has been identified as a risk factor for primary anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears.

Purpose/Hypothesis

The purpose was to prospectively determine if there was a difference in lateral PTS between male and female athletes sustaining contact ACL tears as compared with a group of sex-, age-, […]

Tibial Slope and Its Effect on Force in Anterior Cruciate Ligament Grafts

Background

Previous work has reported that increased tibial slope is directly correlated with increased anterior tibial translation, possibly predisposing patients to higher rates of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears and causing higher rates of ACL graft fail- ures over the long term. However, the effect of changes in sagittal plane […]

Decreased Posterior Tibial Slope Does Not Affect Postoperative Posterior Knee Laxity After Double-Bundle Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Background

Recent clinical studies identified sagittal plane posterior tibial slope as a risk factor for increased postoperative lax- ity after single-bundle posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (PCLR).

Purpose/Hypothesis

To retrospectively compare the degree of posterior tibial slope and its effect on posterior tibial translation (PTT) after double-bundle (DB) PCLR. Our null hypothesis was […]

Decreased Posterior Tibial Slope Does Not Affect Postoperative Posterior Knee Laxity After Double-Bundle Posterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Posterior Tibial Slope and Risk of Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

Background

Recent biomechanical studies have identified sagittal plane posterior tibial slope as a potential risk factor for pos- terior cruciate ligament (PCL) injury because of its effects on the kinematics of the native and surgically treated knee. However, the literature lacks clinical correlation between primary PCL injuries and decreased posterior […]
