The cruciate ligaments are divided into two as anterior cruciate ligaments and posterior cruciate ligaments in terms of the anatomical structure. The most common injuries and ruptures occur in the anterior cruciate ligaments. The reason for this is that the anterior cruciate ligaments are more prone to injury and especially to rupture than other posterior cruciate ligaments. The anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments are extremely important for the normal functioning of the knee structure.

Cruciate ligament ruptures and injuries that occur during sports activities, during reverse movements while walking, accidents, or many other activities can be treated in various ways. These injuries, in which athletes have to stay away from sports activities for approximately 4 weeks, are frequently seen in professional athletes. The anterior cruciate ligament injuries are followed by inner meniscus and other internal ligament injuries. In the United States of America, approximately 200 thousand anterior cruciate ligament injuries are recorded in a year. As society’s interest in sports increases, this number also increases. Although there are no clear statistics, it is estimated that more than 3 thousand anterior cruciate ligament injuries and other rupture anomalies have been experienced in our country within a year.
