This PhD project will be based at Shanghai Jiao Tong University with a 12-month stay at the University of Melbourne. View the Melbourne-based project.
Abnormal structure and force transmission at the graft-bone interface is the major reason for tunnel enlargement and graft laxity following anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. This project aims to explore the effect of macro-and micro- morphology of intact ACL-bone interface and its effect on force transmission, thus providing a scientific foundation for improving the biomechanics of graft-bone interface.
The objective of this project is:
- To quantitatively explore the macro-morphology and micro-structure of ACL-bone interface and its effect on force transmission, thus to provide scientific foundation for improving the biomechanics of graft-bone interface.
