Peripheral ligaments of the knee are often damaged either singly, or in combination with other ligaments during knee injuries. The Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL), or the Postero Lateral Corner (PLC) are commonly involved. If treated early, it is possible to repair the ligaments by stitching the torn ends together. However, in neglected cases and badly damaged ligaments, it is necessary to reconstruct using grafts with open surgery.
