"This is an excellent text [for the] experienced knee surgeon, and medical students and residents as well... an excellent reference for residency programs..." (Arthroscopy)

"This book is the single most useful text about the posterior cruciate ligament available to readers today... It will be an invaluable reference for any hospital library or teaching program." (Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery)

"This book is the single most useful text about the posterior cruciate ligament available to readers today. Dr. Fanelli has compiled an impressive group of contributing authors and has organized the book in a way that makes it very readable and particularly suitable for quick reference. ... This book is recommended for anyone who has a subspecialty interest in the knee. It will be an invaluable reference for any hospital library or teaching program." (Robert E. Hunter, The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, Vol. 84-A (4), 2002)

"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)

"It is a pleasure to review this book which deals with posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). Dr. Fanelli, with the help of 26 contributors, has written a complete text on the basic and advanced concepts for the evaluation and treatment of PCL tears. … 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." (Pier Paolo Mariani, European Journal of Plastic Surgery, Vol. 26 (4), 2003)
