Incidence of PCL injuries varies between 1% and 44% of all knee injuries. It is not common and 95% of all PCL injuries have associated ligament injuries.

You will be in a PCL stabilising brace for 3 months whether being operated or not.  Your compliance with the brace is very important.

 

Optimal rehabilitation is important: protected weight bearing and quadriceps rehabilitation in association with our physiotherapist.

 

Surgery is suggested in:

  • Avulsion fractures of the PCL
  • Isolated grade III injuries
  • High demand sportsmen with grade II injuries
  • Failed conservative treatment or other associated ligamentous injuries.

 

The practice uses autograft ‒ bone patellar tendon bone or hamstrings depending on your daily activities.
