Colorado Knee Specialist Robert LaPrade, MD Publishes New Studies Covering the Function of the Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL) and Treatments for PCL Injuries
Date:11/7/2013

Vail, Colorado (PRWEB) November 07, 2013

Colorado knee specialist Robert LaPrade MD, PhD recently completed a two-part study published in the American Journal of Sports Medicine on the anatomy and treatment of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL).

The PCL is the strongest ligament in the knee and accounts for 3-37 percent of all knee injuries. Historically, there has been little known on the exact function and proper treatment techniques due to the low frequency of PCL injuries.

The first part of the study analyzed the function of the PCL. Previous research by LaPrade’s research group has found that the PCL is composed of two functional bundles - the anterolateral bundle (ALB) and the posteromedial bundle (PMB) – which have very precise attachment sites which can be identified arthroscopically during PCL surgery. However, there is little known o
