Does the fibrillation on the surface of the ACL joint cause your knee to slip and be instable?

In brief: No

Fibrillation means you have some roughness of the surface of the acl that dose not cause your knee to slip out, it is a sign arthritis or slight damage to the ligament.
Good luck thanks.

In brief: Knee instability

If the acl has laxity or is torn the knee will feel like it is slipping.
Fibrillation is not a typical description of the acl.
