The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments are located inside the knee joint, keeping the tibial plateau from slipping when moving.

Dr. Tang Ha Nam Anh, Director of the Orthopedic Trauma Center, Tam Anh General Hospital System, said that immediately after a ligament rupture, the knee will swell quickly.

The posterior cruciate ligament is twice as big as the anterior cruciate ligament, so once an injury ruptures this ligament, it proves that the impact force is very strong.

A strong impact to the front of the knee can cause a rupture of the posterior cruciate ligament.

According to Dr. Tang Ha Nam Anh, there are currently many methods to treat posterior cruciate ligament rupture, of which the most popular is knee arthroscopy.

In cases where the posterior cruciate ligament is seriously damaged and cannot be restored, doctors will reconstruct the ligament with autologous tendons or use artificial ligaments.

Is posterior cruciate ligament rupture dangerous?

Posterior cruciate ligament rupture can be treated with arthroscopic surgery.

Dr. Nam Anh said physical therapy is an indispensable part in the treatment of posterior cruciate ligament rupture.

To reduce the risk of posterior cruciate ligament rupture, when participating in sports, players should be careful to choose sports that are suitable for their physical condition;
