Surgeons Discover New Human Body Part

surgeonsThought we knew every part of the human body? Think again.

Surgeons in Belgium recently discovered a new ligament in the human knee. Publishing their research in the peer-reviewed Journal of Anatomy, the knee specialists provided the first anatomical description of the fibrous tissue, called theanterolateral ligament, or ALL, for short.

Though French surgeon Paul Segond proposed the existence of an additional ligament in the human knee as early as 1879, the structure evaded classification for many years.
