LaPrade, MD, PhD, are the recipients of this award for the best paper submitted in any category with a primary author under the age of 40. Their paper, "An In Vitro Analysis of an Anatomic Medial Knee Reconstruction," found that an anatomic medial knee reconstruction restores near-normal stability and ligament load distribution in patients with chronic or severe acute medial knee injuries, such as a ligament tear of the knee. This award is selected by the AOSSM Awards Subcommittee with principal investigators receiving $1,000 and $1,500 for the sponsoring institution.
This award is given to Thomas J. Gill, MD, Samuel K. Van de Velde, MD, David W. Wing, MD, and Luke S. Oh, MD, Guoan Li, PhD for their paper "Tibofemoral and patellofemoral kinematics following reconstruction of an isolated posterior cruciate ligament injury: In vivo analysis during physiologic loading." The paper was voted the best overall research paper based on clinical research or human in vivo research. The authors explored how abnormal movement of the shin bone and decreased knee rotation and tilt may play a part in the development of cartilage degeneration after a posterior cruciate ligament injury reconstruction. This award is selected by the AOSSM Awards Subcommittee with awardees receiving $2,500.
