Editorial Commentary: Anterolateral Ligament: How Do We Find It?

Arthroscopy. 2016 Jan;32(1):127. doi: 10.1016/j.arthro.2015.11.012.


There is considerable current interest in the role of the anterolateral ligament in persistent instability after anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction. The normal ligament may be identified using magnetic resonance imaging or ultrasound techniques. However, imaging evaluation of the ligament in vivo after injury requires further study to determine indications for repair or reconstruction.
