Abstract

The medial collateral ligament (MCL) is one of the most extensively studied ligaments in our literature. This is due to the fact that it is the most commonly injured ligament of the knee and it is easily defined and mechanically studied in animal models. The purpose of this article is to (1) review the MCL' s response to injury, (2) evaluate the ligament's injury variables, and (3) take an in depth look at treatment options including past, present, and future.
