Anterior Cruciate Ligament


The ACL is one of four knee ligaments, connecting from the posterio-lateral part of the femur to an anterio-medial part of the tibia bone. This enables the knee to resist forces, pushing the tibia forward, relative to the femur. In addition, the ACL is attached to the depression in front of the intercondyloid eminence of the tibia bone, being blended with the anterior extremity of the lateral meniscus.



The ACL travels up, backward, and laterally, and is fixed into the medial and back part of the lateral condyle of the femur bone.
