The effectiveness of ACL reconstruction for restoring normal joint mechanics is poorly understood, especially during physically demanding tasks. For this study, 3D kinematics of ACL-reconstructed and contralateral (uninjured) knees were assessed during down-hill running, using a unique high frame rate stereo-radiography system. Though anterior/posterior tibial translation was restored to normal levels, significant rotational abnormalities were identified in the ACL-reconstructed knees in both the coronal and transverse planes.
