The term “multiligamentous knee injury” refers to the sitation when more than one of the major knee ligaments or ligament complexes has been damaged. This represents a significant insult to the knee that often requires surgical intervention. The four principle ligaments/ligament complexes of the knee are as follows:
- Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)
- Posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)
- Medial collateral ligament (MCL) and posteromedial complex (PMC)
- Lateral collateral ligament (LCL) and posterolateral corner (PLC)
Surgical repair of these injuries often requires augmentation of the native tissue with tendon grafts and is thus referred to as “reconstruction.” While technically challenging, these procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. Rehabilitation is crucial afterwards to optimize the chances for a successful outcome.
