Abstract: The posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) acts as the primary restraint to posterior tibial translation of the knee. Injuries to the PCL are rare in isolation and more often are associated with multiligament injuries to the knee. Several PCL reconstruction and PCL repair techniques have been described in the literature, but no single technique has been shown to be the most superior. Internal bracing with suture tape augmentation encourages natural healing and allows early mobilization. This article describes, with video illustration, PCL repair with suture tape augmentation.
