In vivo kinematics and ligamentous function of the knee during weight-bearing flexion: an investigation on mid-range flexion of the knee

Li et. al. investigated the role of ACL and PCL during mid-range knee flexion. Interesting results might play a role in total knee arthroplasty in managing the mid-range “instability” and enhancing high flexion capability. Reach the study by Li et. al. at: https://doi.org/10.1007/s00167-019-05499-y
