Historical Overview of Lateral Tenodeses Procedures and State of the Art in 2016

Since the original descriptions of the lateral capsuloligamentous complex of the knee, this structure (also known as the anterolateral ligament (ALL)) has been known to be commonly injured at the time of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury. Surgeons have sought to reconstruct the ALL in ACL deficient knees with the goal of restoring normal kinematics. Numerous surgical procedures have been developed over the past 50 years to correct the pathologic anterior and rotatory laxity seen with ACL tears.
