The multiple ligament knee injury involving the medial collateral ligament, anterior cruciate ligament, and posterior cruciate ligament is typically the result of a high-energy trauma or knee dislocation event. Optimal treatment strategies are debated, specifically in regard to timing of surgery, reconstruction/repair techniques, and postoperative protocols. This review details the stepwise treatment of these complex patients from diagnosis to postoperative rehabilitation and summarizes the current literature.
