Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction with Remnant-Preserving Technique

  • Yu-jie Liu

ACL is divided into anteromedial bundle (AMB) and posterolateral bundle (PLB) (Fig. 21.1). The anteromedial bundle (AMB) can resist the tibial forward movement during the flexion of the knee joint, and the posterolateral bundle (PLB) can stabilize the knee joint during the extension position. The stability of knee joint will be affected by partial or complete injury of ACL.
