NEW HUMAN BODY PART DISCOVERED — BUT NOT EVERYONE MAY HAVE IT
For four years, Dr. Steven Claes and Dr. Johan Bellemans, orthopedic surgeons with the University Hospitals Leuven, researched ACL tear repairs and “pivot shift” issues — when the knee gives out — that seemed to be related.
Claes and Belleman’s found the new anterolateral ligament (ALL) in 97 percent (40 of the 41) of cadaver knees they studied. Further research showed this “pivot shift” was the result of an ALL injury.
The discovery of ALL clarifies what the study authors called in their abstract a “long-standing enigma” regarding a ligament connecting the femur with the anterolateral tibia.
It’s amazing that there are still discoveries to made even on a macro level in the human body. This gets me so excited to think that there are so many things to still be discovered out there.
