Abstract

The debate around the existence, anatomy, and role of the so-called anterolateral ligament of the knee represents one of the main sources of recent controversy among orthopedic surgeons. In the modern era of sports medicine, several content experts have contributed to the understanding of the anatomy of the anterolateral aspect of the knee. This article analyzes the historical, phylogenetic, anatomic, arthroscopic, and radiological evidence regarding the anterolateral ligament. The existence of the anterolateral ligament as a distinct ligamentous structure and its exact anatomic features are still matters of controversy and ongoing study.
