Researchers have developed a method to predict post-traumatic osteoarthritis in patients with ligament ruptures using a simplified computational model. The study was published in the journal – Clinical Biomechanics. It also verified the model predictions against measured structural and compositional changes in the knee joint between follow-up times. Knee joint injuries such as ligament rupture are common among athletes. As the intact joint ligaments offer a precondition for joint stability, ligament injuries are often surgically reconstructed. However, in many cases, these injuries or surgeries can lead to post-traumatic osteoarthritis.
