    ACL: ANTERIOR CRUCIATE LIGAMENT

    What is an anterior cruciate ligament?

    The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the four main ligaments located in the knee. It is called a cruciate ligament together with the posterior cruciate ligament as both of them cross together in the middle of the knee to connect the thighbone (femur) to the shinbone (tibia).

    The ACL's higher attachment can be found within the notch of the distal femur while the lower part of the ACL attaches in front of the intercondyloid eminence of the tibia.

    The purpose of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is to keep the knee stable, more approximately to resist anterior translation and medial rotation of the tibia, in relation to the femur.
