Patient Story: Billy Wynne Willson from UK | ACL Reconstruction Surgery | Hungary

Rotational stability during knee moving is one of the essential conditions for pain-free and effective movement. This rotational stability is assured by Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL). ACL helps in controlling the excessive motion. In this activity, ACL is supported by Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL). The ACL tear is the condition characterized by the presence of severe pain, joint swelling, and instability of the knee. Similar symptoms can be experienced by the patients having PCL injury and the in such cases the patient is not able to bear the weight on the knees. These conditions are common during sports when the patient feels while his knees are bent. If left untreated, it may lead to weakness and further damage. A patient, Billy Wynne Wilson, suffering from these conditions, does not want to take the risk and contacted Medigence for further advice. Read on further how Medigence helps Billy to get complete recovery.

PATIENT INTRODUCTION AND MEDICAL CONDITION

36-year-old Billy Wynne Willson, from the UK, was riding on BMX bike when the incident occurs. He fell with a bent left knee and was in pain. His left knee was twisted, and he was rushed to the hospital. The MRI scan of the left knee indicates the complete tear of the ACL from the femoral insertion and there was a lax appearance of the PCL. There was also a bone bruising at the posterior aspect of both the medial and lateral tibial plateau and a subtle bone bruising seen of the lateral femoral condyle.
