Definitions for "Posterior Cruciate Ligament"
Keywords:  tibia, femur, ligament, acl, condyle
Ligament of the knee attaching to posterior tibial plateau and anterior lateral aspect of femoral condyle. It provides stability in keeping the lower leg from going backward.
An internal ligament of the knee joint originating from the medial femoral condyle and inserting into the notch of the posterior tibia. Function: stabilizes the tibia on the femur
The ligament inside the knee that keeps the lower large leg bone (tibia) from sliding backward under the upper leg bone (femur). This ligament is the least likely to stretch or tear. If it does get injured, it's generally from a hyperextension, but the ACL usually gets injured first.
