AbstractPurposeThe purpose of this study was to determine the effects of a lateral meniscus posterior root tear, partial meniscectomy, and total meniscectomy on knee biomechanics in the setting of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction.MethodsThirteen fresh-frozen cadaver knees were tested with a robotic testing system under an 89.0-N anterior tibial load at full extension (FE), 15 °, 30°, 60° and 90° of knee flexion and a simulated pivot-shift loading (7.0 Nm valgus and 5.0 Nm internal tibial rotation) at FE, 15° and 30° of knee flexion. Anterior tibial translation (ATT) and the in-situ fo...

Conclusion: Low self-reported stability is associated with worse symptoms, and worse self-reported and performance-based function. Further research is required to determine the causation relation of self-reported knee stability to knee symptoms and function in individuals with knee osteoarthritis after ACLR.
The surgical limb of participants following ACL-R demonstrated variables that have been associated with the development of patellofemoral pain.
Conclusion: Our results can bring a new perspective on the use of TXA after arthroscopically assisted ACL surgery. Trial registration: This study protocol was registered in Research Registry (researchregistry5798).
Conclusion: Leukocyte-rich platelet-rich plasma may be considered as a treatment option for patients with Baker's cysts in the setting of post-traumatic osteoarthritis. PMID: 32772820 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
