Rotational Laxity in the ACL Deficient Knee

Upcoming Lecture


Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury has been implicated in knee instability. Knee instability or laxity may be defined as abnormal displacement or rotation of the tibia with respect to the femur. ACL deficient knees consequently result in alterations in the alignment and kinematics of the knee joint. Reducing rotational laxity with ACL reconstruction is important in avoiding early osteoarthritis and degenerative knee joint disease.
Dr. Ian Al'Khafaji is an internationally Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon specializing in Sports Medicine and reconstruction surgery of the knee, hip, and Shoulder.
