    Abstract

    The knee joint laxity of mice was quantified in vitro using three devices: a positioning and cementing device, an anterior-posterior laxity tester and a vargus-valgus laxity tester. One of the difficulties experienced during the experiment was in the manual positioning of the murine knee joint in the testers in a reproducible way due to the small size of the joint. Morphometric studies were performed to determine the anatomic landmarks for reproducible positioning.
