"This welcomed publication by Fanelli helps us to understand the precise function of the posterior cruciate ligament. It is a practical guide for the management of posterior cruciate ligament injuries. It can be considered as a reference manual for the posterior cruciate ligament. Nothing is forgotten: anatomy, biomechanics, thorough clinical exam, workup test, treatment. ... This is a `must have' book for any orthopaedic surgeon dealing with knee pathology, especially ligamentous pathology." (H. Charlier, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica, Vol. 69 (1), 2003)

In general this is a well thought-out and appropriately detailed reference work. ... I applaud the authors' effort in providing a complete reference addressing this current and exciting topic."
