Interestingly, during this experiment, the tibia rotated internally until the ACL ruptured. Then, the tibia started to rotate externally [38, 42, 43]. The mean peak torque value at internal torsion test was 33 Nm with tibia internally rotated by 58° and in 20° of valgus [43]. As far as the ACL bundles are concerned, the AM bundle is oriented more vertically in the intercondylar notch in the coronal plane, and it is thought to have little ability to restrain tibial internal–external rotation as it is located close to the vertical axis of rotation.
