Abstract

BACKGROUND:

Numerous studies have investigated kinematic alterations in patients with an isolated anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. However, a substantial proportion of patients with injured ACLs also have concomitant meniscal tears.

PURPOSE:

To evaluate the in vivo alteration of knee kinematics after an ACL tear, with or without a combined medial or lateral meniscal tear, during level walking activity.

CONCLUSION:

The results indicate that meniscal injuries alter the kinematics of the ACLD knee when compared with knees with an isolated ACL injury. The location of the meniscal tear also affects knee kinematics.

CLINICAL RELEVANCE:

Considering the varying effects of meniscal injuries on knee joint kinematics, these data provide insight into the pathological function of the ACL-injured knee joint during walking.
