Abstract

The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of the most frequently torn ligaments of the knee. With more than 100,000 ACL reconstructions performed yearly in the United States, evaluation of ACL grafts with magnetic resonance imaging is a common occurrence in daily clinical practice. Anterior cruciate ligament reconstructions vary from single bundle, double bundle, selective bundle, and physeal-sparing techniques. Complications of ACL graft reconstructions include graft tears, graft laxity, arthrofibrosis, and hardware failure or migration. This article offers a comprehensive review of ACL reconstruction for the consulting radiologist.
