The article discusses malalignment and ligamentous injury. Malalignment of the lower limbs and rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament are main factors in causing metabolic and structural changes within the synovial joint which can lead to osteoarthritis. Robotic systems were used to test the anterior cruciate ligaments role in stabilizing the knee.
