Figure 2: Measurement of the posterior tibial translation, using Telos stress device; as described by [12], [13]. Perpendicular to the tangent of the tibial plateau (A), the midpoints between the most posterior contours of the medial and lateral femoral condyles (B) and tibial plateaus (C) are established. The distance between these two points is regarded as the posterior tibial translation and is subsequently assessed in relation to that of the uninjured contralateral knee.
