PORTO KNEE TESTING DEVICE
A NEW TOOL TO ACCURATELY MEASURE SAGITTAL AND ROTATORY KNEE LAXITY INSIDE MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING OR CT SCAN
TAKE DIAGNOSIS TO THE NEXT LEVEL!
Partial/Total rupture ? Functional or nonfunctional bundle?
Measure and see the real diagnosis!
This method proved to be reliable in assessment of anteroposterior translation (comparing to KT-1000) and rotatory laxity (compared to lateral pivot shift under anaesthesia) of the ACL deficient knee.
It allows a precise measurement of translation and rotation between bony land marks.
This device can be useful in the identification of patients with ACL rupture that require surgery or are advised to do conservative treatment.
It might play a role in surgical indication and prevention or identifying partial ruptures due to its unique feature of combining anatomical and dynamic “clinical” evaluation amplified through the “eyes” of MRI or CT-scan.
This device can contribute to the decision of doing a partial repair and on the surgical technique choice.
PKTD® can also be useful in the evaluation of knee stability after ligament reconstruction (results, return to sports activities and prevention of osteoarthritis).
ACL COMPLETE RUPTURE
ACL + PLC COMBINED INJURY
ACL PARTIAL RUPTURE – NON-FUNCTIONAL BUNDLE
ACL PARTIAL RUPTURE – FUNCTIONAL BUNDLE
PCL + PLC INJURY
ACL RECONSTRUCTION – RESIDUAL LAXITY
PORTO KNEE TESTING DEVICE ADVANTAGES
- Allows objective evaluation of anterior, posterior and combined rotation laxity of the knee.
- Useful in the identification of patients with ACL, PCL and PLC rupture that require surgery or conservative treatment.
- Refining surgical indication by identifying partial ruptures due to its unique feature of correlating anatomy and function
- Contribute to the decision of doing a partial augmentation
- Evaluate knee stability after ligament reconstruction (laxity restoration outcomes, return to sports and correlation with reinjury rates and risk of knee OA).
- Research and medical boost for radiological, orthopaedic and sports medicine fields.
