New Knee Ligament

December 11, 2014

One would have thought that over the past hundreds of years whilst we have been studying the human body and describing the human anatomy in-depth, we would know every muscle, tendon and ligament . This appeared not be the case! Only in 2012 two Belgian doctors discovered a ligament long forgotten about.
A narrow band of tissue, clearly separate from the illiotibial band (ITB) and neatly linking the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shin bone). Because it is located on the outside, front portion of the knee, the ligament is named anterolateral ligament, or A.L.L.
This ligament is not normally described in anatomy nor is it seen in orthopaedic physical examination. It is possible though that a positive “Pivot shift” , a sensitive test for the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is due to an additional tear in the ALL.
