Description: The Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) is one of the less commonly injured ligaments of the knee. Understanding this injury and developing new ways for treatment for this injury has lagged behind the other cruciate ligament in the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), probably because there are far fewer PCL injuries than ACL injuries.
