PMID: 35928660.


The anterior tibial translation (ATT) in case of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) tear can lead to dynamic alterations of the extensor apparatus biomechanics. The aim of this study is to evaluate the dynamic effect of isolated ACL deficiency on patellar height. The hypothesis is that the ATT of ACL-insufficient knees dynamically reduces patellar height.
