Buenos días,

Espero que puedan ayudarme con la siguiente expresión al español: “knee cycling”, relacionada con la reconstrucción del ligamento cruzado anterior. Muchas gracias:

“Specificcally, he reported that all tested ALSF devices showed increased initial and cyclic displacement compared with fixed-loop devices. In some cases, this displacement exceeded the clinical failure threshold of 3 mm. The author proposed that retensioning of the ALSF device after the knee cycling may improve undesired lengthening. Despite this, the importance of retensioning has not been verified in biomechanical studies.“

Probablemente se refiera a esto:
Once tibial fixation has been completed, the knee is again cycled 20 times to remove residual graft creep. The ACL graft is re-examined under direct arthroscopic visualization and probed to evaluate laxity

Imagino que se intentan describir movimientos pasivos de flexoextensión de la rodilla que realiza el cirujano en la mesa de operaciones previo a reajustar la tensión del [dispositivo]; ciclos de movimientos de flexoextensión, que es lo que hacemos activamente cuando andamos en bicicleta.

Así, por ejemplo,

The author proposed that retensioning of the ALSF device after the knee cycling...
El autor planteó que el reajuste de la tensión del dispositivo tras la flexoextensión repetida de la rodilla / tras varias repeticiones/ciclos de flexoextensión pasiva de la rodilla / tras movilización pasiva, "en bicicleta", de la rodilla (...)

No obstante, deberás confirmar por contexto pues no he encontrado corroboración para esta idea.
