mucoid degeneration anterior cruciate ligament

I have this apparently in my right knee anyone know anything about it?


  • I think it's quite rare. The ACL becomes bulbous and hypertrophied. It usually limits flexion range of movement in the knee. If this is the case it can be "debulked" successfully using an arthroscopy. Usually range of movement is restored without symptoms of instability after.
  • Surgeon was reluctant to operate has ent me for intensive physio and then review.
    i tried using google but most of the articles were very technical and used too many big words
  • Hello Goldbeetle i have also in my right knee....what you do for this...i am waiting for your reply
