Adversarial Growth After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Britton W. Brewer, Allen E. Cornelius, Judy L. Van Raalte, and Howard Tennen

responses to sport injury, the main purpose of the current study was to examine longitudinally perceived adversarial growth after a single type of injury—a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)—using a multidimensional measure of adversarial growth. Use of a longitudinal research design afforded the

Differences in Neurocognitive Functions Between Healthy Controls and Anterior Cruciate Ligament-Reconstructed Male Athletes Who Passed or Failed Return to Sport Criteria: A Preliminary Study

Maryam Kiani Haft Lang, Razieh Mofateh, Neda Orakifar, and Shahin Goharpey

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are one of the most common knee lesions in athletes. 1 The injury adversely affects sports participation and health in athletes. 2 Specifically, it increases the risk of early-onset posttraumatic osteoarthritis. 3 ACL-reconstruction (ACLR) surgery is

Arthrogenic Muscle Inhibition Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

Brian Pietrosimone, Adam S. Lepley, Christopher Kuenze, Matthew S. Harkey, Joseph M. Hart, J. Troy Blackburn, and Grant Norte

Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are among the most common knee-related injuries sustained by physically active individuals. 1 A recent population study from the United States demonstrated an overall estimated incidence of 69 ACL injuries per 100,000 person years. 2 Younger individuals

Alterations in Quadriceps Neurologic Complexity After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Steven M. Davi, Colleen K. Woxholdt, Justin L. Rush, Adam S. Lepley, and Lindsey K. Lepley

Unresolved alterations in quadriceps neural activity are common after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) and clinically significant, as depressed neural activity interferes with recovery. 1 – 3 To estimate incomplete neural activation, traditionally, quadriceps activation failure has

Energy Absorption Contribution Deficits in Participants Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction: Implications for Second Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injury

Trevor Kovacs, Joseph Hannon, Sharon Wang-Price, Shiho Goto, Jim Bothwell, Steve Singleton, Lindsey Dietrich, J. Craig Garrison, and Jack Malafronte

Nearly 200,000 anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears occur yearly in the United States, with up to 90% resulting in reconstructive surgery. 1 Although various surgical methods and rehabilitation protocols have been utilized with the intention of improving patient outcomes following anterior

Assessment of Aerobic Fitness Following Anterior Cruciate Ligament Rupture and Reconstruction

Dean M. Cordingley, Sheila M.B. McRae, Greg Stranges, and Peter B. MacDonald

Reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACLr) following a rupture is frequent, with an estimated 17,000 ACLrs occurring in Canada each year. 1 Following ACLr, only 83% of elite athletes 2 and 65% of nonelite athletes return to their preinjury level of sport 3 with an average time to

Comparing the Diagnostic Accuracy of Two Selective Tissue Tests for Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries: A Critically Appraised Topic

Rafael Squillantini, Brielle Ringle, and Julie Cavallario

Clinical Scenario Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) sprains are one of the most common lower extremity injuries within physically active individuals. In the United States alone, approximately 250,000 ACL sprains occur annually. 1 ACL sprains are one of the most costly lower extremity injuries, due

Reliability of Knee Flexion–Extension Lyapunov Exponent in People With and Without Anterior Cruciate Ligament Deficiency

Salman Nazary-Moghadam, Mahyar Salavati, Ali Esteki, Behnam Akhbari, Sohrab Keyhani, and Afsaneh Zeinalzadeh

Anterior cruciate ligament deficiency (ACLD) is a common sports-related injury commonly followed by knee instability. 1 . Previous studies have shown that mechanical and functional instability of the knee, impaired muscle recruitment, loss of force, muscle atrophy, and impaired neuromuscular

Association Between Knee Extension Strength at 3 and 6 Months After Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

Sho Mitomo, Junya Aizawa, Kenji Hirohata, Shunsuke Ohji, Takehiro Ohmi, Toshiyuki Ohara, Hideyuki Koga, and Kazuyoshi Yagishita

Deficits in the knee extension strength of the surgical limb after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction (ACLR) are a serious problem 1 as they have been associated with poor outcomes such as delayed return to sports, 2 , 3 and an increased risk of reinjury 4 , 5 and knee osteoarthritis. 6
