Anterior Cruciate Ligament anatomy and preventive measures.
The foremost cruciate tendon (upper leg tendon) is one of 2 cruciate tendons that guides in balancing out the knee joint. It is areas of strength for a made of connective tissue and collagenous filaments that start from the anteromedial part of the intercondylar locale of the tibial level and stretches out posteromedially to join to the horizontal femoral condyle. The anteromedial pack and posterolateral group structure the 2 parts of the ACL. The leg tendon and the back cruciate tendon (PCL) together structure a cross (or an "x") inside the knee and forestall unnecessary forward or in reverse movement of the tibia comparative with the femur during flexion and expansion. The upper leg tendon also furnishes rotational steadiness to the knee with varus or valgus stress. Upper leg tendon injuries and tears are normal knee wounds, with a revealed rate of 100,000 to 200,000 in the US consistentlyAuthor(s): Sherman Raines*
