Abstract

In the athlete with a neglected anterior cruciate deficiency, the recurrent episodes of pivot shift may cause a characteristic sequence of pathological events in the knee. The consequences of anterior cruciate deficiency and lateral pivot shift are several; with time, an unresolved deficiency causes an increase in instability with all associated problems.
