Abstract:The knee joints of mice can be used as a model for studying the effects of interventions on knee laxity. The goal of this study was to quantify knee joint laxity in vitro. Three devices were developed: a positioning-and cemcnting device, an anterior-posterior (AP) laxity tester and a varus-valgus (VV) laxity tester. The positioningand cementing device was used to position the joint in a reproducible way and to attach clamping pins to the proximal femur and distal tibia using PMMA. The clamping pins were used t… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
