Anterior laxity, graft-tunnel interaction and surgical design variations during anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: A probabilistic simulation of the surgery.
Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstructive surgeries, employing a total of 48 models, were conducted by virtually removing the ACL and then modeling the surgical preparation, tunnel architecture, graft pre-tensioning and fixation angle of a bone-patellar-tendon-bone autograft. Multifactorial sensitivity analyses were performed to assess the relative influence of these surgical factors on the intraoperative joint laxity, graft-tunnel contact mechanics and graft forces. The sensitivity…read more
