ABSTRACT
The article presents an overview of partial anterior cruciate ligament tears. A discussion of the proper diagnosis of partial anterior cruciate ligament tears and of therapeutics which are used with partial anterior cruciate ligament tears is presented. The anatomic and biomechanical aspects of partial anterior cruciate ligament tears are discussed.

    Arthroscopic reconstruction of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) has evolved to less invasive, more anatomical approaches. Consequently, post-operative rehabilitation has likewise become more progressive and innovative. On the other hand, few objective, functional criteria are used to determine...
