Relation Between Anterior Cruciate Ligament Graft Obliquity and Knee Laxity in Elite Athletes at the National Football League Combine
Mall NA et al. – There was a wide range of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) graft obliquity in the examined cohort of elite athletes who continued to perform at high levels. Less oblique (more vertical) grafts were associated with greater anterior tibial translation on Lachman testing. ACL graft obliquity, which is particularly sensitive to tibial tunnel placement, can influence knee stability.
