Despite advances in surgery and rehabilitation, the return to sport after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction surgery remains a major challenge. challenge. Among the objective criteria retained, the isokinetic muscle strength assessment is an increasingly practiced evaluation and it is recommended to carry out follow-ups at 3-4 months (intermediate) and at 6-8 months (final) after surgery. However, the factors associated with muscle imbalance are uncertain and the threshold values of the intermediate isokinetic strength test (3-4 months) are inconsistent. In a retrospective analysis, the investigators aim to assess the predictive criteria for muscle imbalance after ACL reconstruction surgery.
This prospectively study aims to evaluate the evolution of knee joint proprioception on isokinetic dynamometer before and after Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) reconstruction and its relationships with muscle strength, self reported questionnaire and return to sport. This study will include 30 athletes with isolated ACL rupture, and treated with ACL reconstruction surgery and 15 healthy volunteers.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of the Össur Rebound dynamic ACL brace on knee kinematics evaluated using dynamic stereo X-ray (DSX) imaging during functional activities. Brace performance will be evaluated before and after ACL reconstruction.
After anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, the involved quadriceps may demonstrate weakness due to decrease in quadriceps activation. However, elapsed time from the injury may affect muscle strength by restoration of the quadriceps activation. The injury is characterized by joint instability that leads to decreased activity, unsatisfactory knee function, and poor knee-related quality of life in the short term, and it is associated with an increased risk of osteoarthritis on the knee. This study was designed to compare muscle strength, questionnaire and knee function in patients with different exercise training.
