Isolated Posterior Cruciate Ligament Injuries of the Knee

F. Petrigliano and D. McAllister

Isolated injuries of the posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) are rare in comparison to other ligamentous injuries at the knee.  There is a lack of evidenced-based literature regarding their treatment and the management of high grade PCL insufficiency remains a matter of debate.  This article aims to provide the treatment provider with an overview of the aetiology and diagnosis of isolated PCL injuries.  It also gives an objective review of contempory surgical treatment options and outcomes as reported in the current literature.
