Anterior Cruciate Ligament
The knee is one of the most common locations for injury in football players (second only to the thigh). While anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries represent less than 1% of all injuries, their impact on a players career is very significant. As a result these injuries are well known and widely publicised.
In this module we will review the clinical assessment of patients with an ACL injury. In particular we will review aspects of the history and examination which are suggestive of this injury. We will also discuss the imaging of acute knee injuries and examine the different options available for treatment of ACL deficiency.
