A straight anteromedial incision for the exposure of the medial, posteromedial, and posterior ligaments of the knee provides favorable exposure of the distal attachment site of the posterior cruciate ligament. This approach enables a medial parapatellar arthrotomy to be performed through the same incision. The key elements of the exposure are the reflection of the semimembranosus tendon and detachment of the posterior capsule from the medial meniscus.
