ACL and PCL Reconstruction Implants

Orthopedic Implants and Instruments for ACL/PCL Reconstruction

The bone structure of the knee joint is formed by the femur, the tibia, and the patella. The ACL is one of the four main ligaments within the knee that connect the femur to the tibia. The ACL runs diagonally in the middle of the knee, preventing the tibia from sliding out in front of the femur, as well as providing rotational stability to the knee. The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most commonly injured ligaments of the knee. The posterior cruciate ligament, or PCL, is the strongest ligament of the knee. The posterior cruciate ligament’s most important function is to prevent posterior translation of the knee at higher knee flexion angles. Thus, patients commonly complaining of problems with deceleration, problems going down stairs and inclines or general twisting, turning or pivoting activities.
