This article reviews a selection of studies on biomechanics of the knee that have appeared in the English language literature between August 1992 and July 1993. Studies of the natural knee continue to address ligament mechanics and knee motion, with special interest in injury, reconstruction, and clinical assessment. The new techniques and information that have emerged on the subject of ligament mechanics are most notable and shall enhance further research in this area. On the topic of total knee arthroplasty, there have been interesting findings regarding kinematics and wear of the patellofemoral joint, and fixation of tibial implants under cyclic loading.
