The PCL is fan-shaped, being narrowest in the mid-portion and fanning out superiorly and, to a lesser extent, inferiorly. The PCL originates on the posterior surface of the tibia and passessuperiorly and anteromedially to insert on the lateral wall of the medial femoral condyle. The PCL consists of a larger anterior band, which is taut in flexion and relaxed in extension, and a smaller posterior band, which is taut in extension and relaxed in flexion.
The main role of the PCL is to prevent anterior displacement (forward movement) of the femur on the tibia, eg prevent hyperflexion.
