There are in total four primary ligaments in the knee. These Ligaments act like strong ropes to hold the bones together and keep the knee stable during walking or running or stretching the legs. The first set of ligaments is the collateral ligaments which are found on the sides of the knee. Collateral ligaments help to control the sideways motion of your knee and brace it against unusual movement. The other set of ligaments are the Cruciate Ligaments. Cruciate Ligaments are found inside the knee joint. There are two Cruciate Ligaments – the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) which is in front and the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) which is in the back. These cruciate ligaments help to control the back and forth motion of your knee.Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) requires a powerful force to get injured and hence a common cause of PCL injury is a bent knee hitting a strong surface in a vehicle accidents or somebody falling on a knee that is bent.
The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) is located in the back of the knee and is one of several ligaments that connect the femur (thighbone) to the tibia (shinbone). The posterior cruciate ligament helps to keep the tibia from moving backwards too far.Surgery to rebuild a posterior cruciate ligament is done using minimally invasive technique with an arthroscope. Arthroscopic surgery for PCL repair makes few small incisions and hence is less invasive. Since it is a less invasive procedure, the patient has get some benefits such as less lesser pain from surgery, lesser blood loss, shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery.The cost of PCL repair and more common ACL repair is almost the same. Both surgeries are done arthroscopically and hence require shorter hospital stay and lesser recovery time. Moreover no artificial implants or prosthesis are used and these procedures are very routinely done. All these things help to keep the cost of PCL repair surgery low.
