The feasibility of using muscle tendon moment arms in flexion-extension and internal-external rotation as a uniform description of effective knee joint kinematics was investigated for the normal knee, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-minus knee, and two knee-prosthesis combinations. A posterior cruciate sparing total knee arthroplasty was performed according to standard protocol, along with a lateral retinacular release to restore normal patellar tracking. The prosthesis was revised to a posterior stabilized total knee arthroplasty. Data treatment included conversion of voltages to angles and excursions and smoothing with a five point running average.
