Aims and scope
The Journal of Experimental Orthopaedics is an international journal that aims to bridge the gap between orthopaedic basic science and the clinics and publishes papers related to the entire field of experimental orthopaedics, including physiological, pathological and therapeutic aspects of cartilage, bone, tendons and ligaments and other musculoskeletal tissues. It is the official basic science journal of ESSKA, the European Society of Sports Traumatology, Knee Surgery and Arthroscopy. The journal ensures rapid peer-review and publication of high quality papers.
Featured Article: A cadaveric model to evaluate the effect of unloading the medial quadriceps on patellar tracking and patellofemoral joint pressure and stability
This study investigated Vastus Medialis Obliquus (VMO) and Vastus Medialis Longus (VML) muscle tension in patellar tracking, stability and PFJ contact pressures. Reduction of VMM tension resulted in increases in lateral patellar tilt and translation, with elevated lateral and reduced medial joint contact pressures and reduced patellar stability. This supports the role of quadriceps strengthening to resist patellar lateral maltracking and rebalance the articular contact pressure away from the lateral facet in patients with normal patellofemoral joint anatomy.
