What is the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)?

The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is one of four major ligaments in the knee joint and perhaps the most important. The ACL ligament allowing the knee to bend and twist without discomfort or limited motion. The anterior cruciate ligament can only twist or stretch so far before it becomes damaged or ruptured, which is around 2-3 mm. Hence, if the anterior cruciate ligament ACL has been fully torn or ruptured then, arthroscopic surgery is usually the best option. See Acl reconstruction video.

The knee ligament ACL reconstruction surgery is a tissue graft replacement of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). The surgery is performed to restore the function of the knee after an injury or rupture of the ACL (ACL tear). The ACL reconstruction surgery is performed arthroscopic.
