The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of the pes anserinus transplant (PAT) on the amount and strength of tibial rotation on the femur. Six male and two female rehabilitated subjects were used in the investigation. Each subject was secured to a specially constructed testing platform which positioned the hips and knees at 90° of flexion. Both lower limbs were tested for inward and outward tibial rotation on the femur using the Leighton flexometer and strength of inward and outward tibial rotation on the femur using the cable tensiometer. The results indicated that with the knee at 90° of flexion there was no significant difference in degrees of rotation or rotational strength between the surgical and nonsurgical limbs in rehabilitated subjects following pes anserinus transplant surgery.
