ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of partial anterior cruciate ligament tears. A discussion of the proper diagnosis of partial anterior cruciate ligament tears and of therapeutics which are used with partial anterior cruciate ligament tears is presented. The anatomic and biomechanical aspects of partial anterior cruciate ligament tears are discussed.

    Arthroscopic reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has evolved to less invasive, more anatomical approaches. Consequently, post-operative rehabilitation has likewise become more progressive and innovative. On the other hand, few objective, functional criteria are used to determine...

    Background: Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury can lead to tibiofemoral instability, decreased functional outcomes, and degenerative joint disease. It is unknown whether ACL reconstruction alters this progression at long-term follow-up. Methods: A systematic literature review of the...

    The article gives advice on the treatment, prevention and rehabilitation of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries. The treatment of an ACL injury risks disrupting growth of a skeletally immature child and avulsion of the child's tibial spine. Icing, local compression and limiting...

    Aim: this study aims to develop and validate a two sensor system which can be used non-invasively in both clinical and research settings to quantify the degree of pivot shift present. This is a novel approach to objectively measure the pivot shift. It is low cost, non-invasive and the first...
