Where Is The Anterior Cruciate Ligament Is Located In The Human Body
The knee: The anterior cruciate ligament is located directly in the center of the knee and is a major stabilizer of the knee joint.See 1 more doctor answer

Yes (to an extent): Any surgery will cause post-operative pain. There will also be discomfort with the therapy that is required after the procedure. Different patients have different pain thresholds, but usually, the pain post-operatively isn't so bad (from the feedback I've gotten from my patients who have had the surgery).See 2 more doctor answers
Knee instability: The anterior cruciate ligament (acl) is one of four major ligaments in the knee to help maintain knee stability (the others include the posterior cruciate ligament - pcl, lateral collateral ligament - lcl, and the medial collateral ligament - mcl). The ACL is the most significant of the four and helps prevent the lower leg from sliding forward from the upper leg.See 1 more doctor answer
What diffuses the tear of the anterior cruciate ligament with posterior displacement within the intercondylar?
Nothing: There is nothing that would "diffuse" a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament (acl). Acl is one of only few ligaments in our body that is entirely intra-articular which means it is not within soft tissues but is sitting inside the joint space with some surrounding joint fluid. This atmosphere makes it impossible for the ACL to heal (which I am assuming what you meant by diffuse).See 1 more doctor answer
Full-thickness tear of the proximal insertion of the anterior cruciate ligament, likely acute. What are my options? I am very active, and I have been since I was about 5. Football, Softball, Basketball, and on and on. Please help with options with wha
Surgery if: Not able to return to desired level of play by 3 months. Graft type best discussed with operating doctor we all have our preferences.
Could be simple: As long as your knee is stable and your acl is intact you don't need to worry. You may just needs some rest and therapy
Does a displacement of the meniscus root mean that it is torn? Can the anterior cruciate ligament tear from twisting your knee while standing?
Yes: Displacement of the meniscus means to me tear, it is unlikely to tear acl from twisting action while stand.See 1 more doctor answer
My mr images reveal an acute partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament, moderate synovial effusion, and bone contusion. What does this mean?
You need to be seen: You need to be seen to determine whether the knee is unstable. If unstable, you need to have a discussion with your doctor as to whether or not surgery may be needed.
ACL: The acl is the main stabilizing ligament in the knee. When it tears or ruptures, it can not be repaired, but needs to be reconstructed with a graft. There are numerous graft options which can be used to make a "new" acl.
Discuss w/ Ortho MD: Most torn acls eventually require surgical reconstruction in young active patients who desire to return to any sort of activities that require changing direction or quick starting and stopping. A thorough examination of your knee detailing any other concomitantly injured structures (meniscal tear, cartilage injury, etc.) will also dictate your indication and timing for potential acl surgery.
Rehab: Rehabilitation with a physical therapist for an acl protocol specified by your surgeon is very important in your recovery.
Reconstruct if torn: Most anterior cruciate ligament injuries that are complete tears end up being reconstructed by bringing in new tissue to rebuild the torn ligament and to hopefully return full function to the knee and injured patient.
Would depend on trea: This would depend on treatment options you choose. The cruciate injury is a major debilitating injury that can be rehabbed to about 80% of pre injury status when properly evaluated and treated. Would suggest that he be seen by a specialist as soon as possible.See 1 more doctor answer
Orthopedic consult: The anterior cruciate ligament is a key ligament in the knee for stability both going front and back as well as rotationally. Your child would have complaints of giving way, pain, swelling and lack of confidence in using that knee during activity. I recommend you see your local orthopedic surgeon and if possible one fellowship trained in sports medicine.See 1 more doctor answer
I am awaiting surgery for anterior cruciate ligament tear. Are there any exercises that I coulddo?
Quadriceps strength: Work on quadriceps strength and thereby go into surgery with as strong quadriceps as possible. That will be the muscle group you will also focus on after surgery.
Diagnose the problem: Early and treat it properly.Get a more detailed answer ›
Knee hyperextension: The ACL may tear when certain movements of the knee place a great strain on the acl. Hyperextension of the knee, that is, if the knee is straightened more than 10 degrees beyond its normal fully straightened position, is a very common cause of an torn acl. This position of the knee forces the lower leg excessively forward in relation to the upper leg. Pivoting injuries of the knee with exc.See 2 more doctor answers
