The Anterolateral Ligament (ALL): Anatomy, Biomechanics and Function

Steven Claes, MD, PhD, (University of Leuven, Belgium) asks the compelling question, “How can a centrally located cord-like structure like the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) actually prevent rotation?” Dr. Claes systematically explains the extensive biomechanical testing that compares the effects of ACL and ALL on internal tibial rotation and the pivot-shift. He goes on to demonstrate the minimally invasive ALL reconstruction technique to increase rotational stability.
