Mucoid Degeneration of the ACL

The ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) is one of the major stabilizing ligaments in the knee. It is a strong rope like structure located in the center of the knee running from the femur to the tibia. When this ligament tears unfortunately it doesn’t heal and often leads to the feeling of instability in the knee.

Mucoid degeneration of ACL presents with knee pain and restriction of flexion. Arthroscopic resection of ACL mucoid degeneration is effective for treating pain and flexion limitation.
