Sports Medicine and Arthroscopy Review: September 2020 - Volume 28 - Issue 3 - p 80-86 doi: 10.1097/JSA.0000000000000279 Buy Metrics Abstract An understanding of knee ligament anatomy and biomechanics is foundational for physicians treating knee injuries, especially the more rare and morbid multiligamentous knee injuries. This chapter examines the roles that the cruciate and collateral anatomy and morphology play in their kinematics. Additionally, the biomechanics of the ACL, PCL, MCL, and LCL are discussed as they have surgical and reconstructive implications. Copyright © 2020 Wolters Kluwer Health, Inc. All rights reserved.
