Table 1 Differences between pre and post osteotomy in in situ force of medial meniscus and tibiofemoral relationship at 60°of knee flexion (n = 5)

From: Reduction of in situ force through the meniscus with phased inner resection of medial meniscus: an experimental study in a porcine model

In situ force under a 300-N axial load (N)111.9 ± 10.6108.4 ± 13.80.68
Tibial position (mm) and rotation (°) relative to femur

  1. Tibial position relative to the femur at 30° of knee flexion was defined as a zero position while suppressing the other force/moment on the knee joint at zero.
  2. *Statistical significance was tested by Mann-Whitney U test
