MRI and rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)

Print Article

Introduction:

The diagnosis of a torn anterior cruciate ligament is clinical. (Fig 1)

MRI of the knee may be requested to confirm the diagnosis, to take stock of associated lesions (meniscal lesions, lateral planes) and to assess the severity of lesions.

clinical diagnosis:

The diagnosis of a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) based on:

The circumstances of the trauma:

- Sports Accident (skiing, football, rugby ....)
- Mechanism of the accident (torsion, drop, shock, giving way ...)
- Perception of a crunch
- Immediate Functional Impotence or not
- Hematoma or knee effusion

The sign of subjective search ACL:

- Knee instability sensation
- D├ęrobement knee

The objective evidence of research ACL:

- Sign of positive Lachman
- Positive anterior drawer
- Rotary jump or jerk positive test

MRI diagnosis:

The normal ACL appears on MRI as a band of hypointense signal, stretched between the femur and the tibia. Its limits are clear.

inserts:

- Top (femur), the most posterior part of the medial aspect of the lateral condyle
- The bottom (tibia) on the pre-spinal surface of the tibia

Consisting of 2 beams

- Anteromedial and posterolateral bundle

The diagnosis of ACL tear MRI is based on direct and indirect signs

morphological:

- No visualization LCAE
- Visualization of the rupture zone

signal:

- Ligament hyperintense on T2 sequences

Orientation:

- Aspect of relaxed LCAE
- Horizontalization LCAE

The indirect signs are:

- Bone contusions (bruising of the outer compartment front part of the lateral condyle and the posterior portion of the lateral tibial tray)
- Anterior subluxation of the tibia external> 7mm
- Verticalisation or deformation of the LCP

Conclusion:

MRI is an efficient examination for the diagnosis of rupture LCAE but the diagnosis must be mainly clinical.
MRI allows the assessment of associated injuries
- Injuries and Meniscal disinsertions
- Attacks collateral Plans
- Bone and osteochondral fractures
