Table 2 rTR and ATT during different movements in ACL-deficient, ACL-reconstructed and ACL-intact knees

From: The correlation between posterior tibial slope and dynamic anterior tibial translation and dynamic range of tibial rotation

Kinematic variable ACL-deficient ACL-reconstructed ACL-intact
Range of tibial rotation (in degrees; mean (SD))
 Level walking 13.7 (4.1) a(P = 0.15,ns) 14.1 (3.9) b(P = 0.12,ns) 17.3 (6.4)
 SLHD 16.9 (3.7) a(P = 0.21,ns) 18.4 (3.4) b(P = 0.64,ns) 19.4 (5.5)
 Side jump 16.6 (5.8) a(P = 0.08,ns) 18.3 (4.7) b(P = 0.24,ns) 20.7 (3.6)
Anterior tibial translation (in mm; mean (SD))
 Level walking 4.6 (4.8) a(P = 0.13,ns) 4.8 (5.4) b(P = 0.25,ns) 6.6 (3.0)
 SLHD 9.3 (5.1) a(P = 0.21,ns) 11.7 (9.2) b(P = 0.60,ns) 13.4 (7.2)
