The ACL is a band of regularly oriented connective tissue that connects the femur and tibia. It is narrow in the middle, fanning out inferiorly, and to a lesser extent, further superiorly. The ACL passes from the anterior tibia to the posterior part of the inner aspect of the lateral femoralcondyle. The femoral attachment is in the form of a circle.
The ACL prevents anterior displacement (forward movement) of the tibia in relation to the femur, eg. preventing hyperextension, as well as providing a check to rotation at the knee joint.
