BACKGROUND The anterior cruciate is the most frequent knee ligament to be totally disrupted. Surgical reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament is a common practice to treat the disability or chronical instability of knees due to anterior cruciate ligament insufficiency. Some of the factors that influence the success or failure of the anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction are the integrity of secondary restraints, the preoperative laxity of the knee, the status of the articular and… CONTINUE READING
