What is ACL?

Anterior Cruciate Ligament or ACL is one of the four major ligaments of the knee. It connects from a posterio-lateral part of the femur to an anterio-medial part of the tibia. These attachments allow it to resist forces pushing the tibia forward relative to the femur.

Knee Ligament Injuries

Knee ligament injuries result due to many reasons like twisting motion, rapid direction change while running, extending the knee forcefully beyond its normal range, and so on.

Common knee ligament injuries are torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), torn posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), torn medial collateral ligament (MCL). An unfortunately common painful knee ligament condition is the "unhappy triad" of torn medial collateral and anterior cruciate ligaments and a torn medial meniscus, which, typically arises from a combination of inwards forcing and twisting.


ACL Reconstruction Surgery

Anterior Cruciate Ligament reconstruction surgery uses a graft to replace the injured ligament.

The common grafts are :

  • Autografts using part of patient`s own body (tendon of the kneecap) or one of the hamstring tendons
  • Allograft tissue (donor material)


ACL Repair Surgery

In case of Anterior Cruciate Ligament repair surgery, the ends of the torn ligament are sewn back together. Repair surgery is done when there is a separation of the ligament and a piece of the bone from the rest of the bone. By the ACL repair surgery, the bone fragment connected to the ACL is reattached to the bone.
