We have tested the hypothesis that the meniscofemoral ligaments make a significant contribution to resisting anteroposterior and rotatory laxity of the posterior-cruciate-ligament-deficient knee. Eight cadaver human knees were tested for anteroposterior and rotatory laxity in a materials-testing machine. The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) was then divided, followed by division of the meniscofemoral ligaments (MFLs). Laxity results were obtained for intact, PCL-deficient, and PCL-MFL-deficient knees. Division of the MFLs in the PCL-deficient knee increased posterior laxity between 15° and 90° of flexion. Force-displacement measurements showed that the MFLs contributed 28% to the total force resisting posterior drawer at 90° of flexion in the intact knee, and 70.1% in the PCL-deficient knee. There was no effect on rotatory laxity. This is the first study which shows a function for the MFLs as secondary restraints to posterior tibial translation. The integrity of these structures should be assessed during both imaging and arthroscopic studies of PCL-injured knees since this may affect the diagnosis and management of such injuries.

In vivo loading data for the rotator cuff would be of value to scientists and clinicians interested in the shoulder. The Arthroscopically Insertable Force Probe (AIFP; Microstrain, Burlington, VT) offers a potential method for collecting this information. A technique for insertion and retrieval of the AIFP from the subscapularis is described. The method was initially established in a cadaveric model. The AIFP was inserted into the subscapularis tendon in 3 volunteers during diagnostic shoulder arthroscopy. After the motor effects of interscalene block had worn off, dynamic data relating to subscapularis tendon loading was collected. The AIFPs were removed through a port site by traction on a 0 (3.5 metric) nylon suture without complications.

Our objectives were to establish the envelope of passive movement and to demonstrate the kinematic behaviour of the knee during standard clinical tests before and after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). An electromagnetic device was used to measure movement of the joint during surgery. Reconstruction of the ACL significantly reduced the overall enveldpe of tibial rotation (10° to 90° flexion), moved this envelope into external rotation from 0° to 20° flexion, and reduced the anterior position of the tibial plateau (5° to 30° flexion) (p < 0.05 for all). During the pivot-shift test in early flexion there was progressive anterior tibial subluxation with internal rotation. These subluxations reversed suddenly around a mean position of 36 ± 9° of flexion of the knee and consisted of an external tibial rotation of 13 ± 8° combined with a posterior tibial translation of 12 ± 8 mm. This abnormal movement was abolished after reconstruction of the ACL.
