What is Anterior Cruciate Ligament? 
Why does it break?
What happens when it rips?

  The anterior cruciate ligament is an intra-articular ligament located inside the knee joint from the inside to the outside, from the top to the bottom, providing the stability of the joint. As the name suggests, this ligament also has a posterior cruciate ligament, which we will present to you as another piece of information._cc781905-5cde -3194-bb3b-136bad5cf58d_

  The injury usually occurs during a sporting activity. The person either receives a blow to the knee or feels that the knee is spinning while running. In any case, the person cannot continue his sport. The knee swells due to bleeding due to rupture and cannot step on it. It is quite a painful condition.

   When the patient presents to the emergency department with such an injury, the patient, who is evaluated as an emergency, has a 2-sided normal X-ray of the knee first _cc781905-5cde-3194-bb358_1394c The patient is evaluated as a whole, and if there is no other pathology, various drugs are prescribed, often with the continuation of the treatment at home, regular application of cold to the trauma area and elastic bandage wrapping is recommended.

   The patient treated in this way urgently is then reevaluated. Since the examination of the knee with reduced swelling and pain will be easier, all structures such as internal lateral ligament, external lateral ligament, posterior cruciate ligament, internal-external menisci, patellar tendon etc. are examined. The typical examination finding for the anterior cruciate ligament is the FRONT DRAWER TEST positive or alternatively the " LACHMAN TEST " positive. If the orthopedic doctor deems it necessary, he or she may request an MRI of the knee.

   MR is examined, the acute stage is expected to pass. The acute phase lasts approximately 6 weeks. At the end of this period, the patient should have returned to his daily activities and continue his life with a pain-free knee. However, if he/she expresses that he/she experiences the feeling of rotation in the knee, even if it is painless, the decision to operate the anterior cruciate ligament is made.
