Abstract

The history of surgical treatment of the posterior cruciate ligament injuries spanned more than 100 years. The first publications describing knee surgical stabilization have appeared in the early 20th century Until the early 1980’s there were several original methods of surgical treatment of posterior cruciate ligament injury including a dynamic stabilization with plasty by local tissues. Since the 1980’s with the development of arthroscopy the approach to surgical treatment of knee ligament injuries has changed. The authors discussed both advantages and disadvantages of different techniques of arthroscopic posterior cruciate ligament plasty. This review presents different views on arthroscopic repair of posterior cruciate ligament at present time.
