Dr. Harner recalls if posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) injuries are common.
In my practice of knee surgery, the ratio of ACL to PCL injuries is about 10 ACLs for one PCL. So it’s not as common. You see it in a couple of different settings. You will see where you have an isolated tear, and then you’ll see it when it’s combined with other ligaments.
