Difficult and rare: It is fairly rare and difficult to tear both an acl and lateral collateral a the same time without tearing other structures. When it does happen, the knee is usually quite unstable, and would not be able to function as a unit. Most of these end up with an early acl reconstruction with repair or reconstruction of the torn parts of the lateral collateral complex.
