Dynamical Characteristics of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Deficiency Combined Meniscus Injury Knees
It has been commonly believed that concomitant meniscus injuries may alter the dynamical condition of knee joint. The aim of this study was to analyze dynamical characteristics of ACLD knees with or without meniscus deficiency during level walking. The results indicated that meniscus plays an important role in bearing knee rotation moment. Additionally, the deficiency of meniscus could affect the dynamical condition of ACLD knees, especially during mid-stance phase and mid-swing. Future studies should focus on dynamical characteristics during those phases and related muscles.
