New body part discovered!

No, it's not a joke. 

It's a new ligament inside the knee.

You would have though something so basic as the knee would be pretty much figured out.

But, apparently it was discovered by a couple of Drs trying to understand why some ACL repairs that look fine still occasionally still aren't successful. Apparently the new ligament called the "ALL", can be to blame.

Knee sufferers, take note. Tell your doctor to hit the books!


  1. Yep, I would have thought they'd have found all the tendons and ligaments by now. Amazing that it's taken the medical fraternity so long to find it.

  2. Ditto to Char. I will talk to the Doc:)

  3. And I'm NOT going into the Marathon Maniac group. NOT NOT NOT!

  4. Very cool! My doc told me a strong butt makes for healthy knees. I wonder if he's on it & knows about this new ligament?
