    Abstract

    Several devices allow to measure anterior and rotational static knee laxity. To date, the use of rotational laxity measurements in the daily clinical practice however remains to be improved. These measurements may be systematically integrated to the follow-up of knee injuries. Physiologic laxity measurements may particularly be of interest for the identification of risk factors in athletes. Furthermore, knee laxity measurements help to improve the diagnosis of knee soft tissue injuries and to follow up reconstructions. Further prospective follow-ups of knee laxity in the injured/reconstructed knees are however required to conclude on the best treatment strategy for knee soft tissue injuries.
