Description: The Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) is the most commonly injured ligament of the knee. The ligament is most commonly injured during an athletic activity. This injury has received a great deal of attention from orthopedic surgeons over the past 15 years and very successful operations to reconstruct the torn anterior cruciate ligament have been invented.
