The objective of this study is the comparison between the works in the closed kinetic chain (CKC) versus the open kinetic chain (OKC) in ligamentoplasties of the ACL according to the scientific evidence (SE) (Figure 1). One of the main concepts in the treatment after the ligamentoplasty of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is the recovery of the necessary muscular qualities for the socio-professional activities. This muscular work must respect the process of tissue and ligament healing. This is made in base of a combination of suggestions in OKC or in CKC that will follow implantation stages inside the clinical trajectory or guidance according to the different phases of the tendon-ligament transplant maturation respecting the process of the ligament reconstruction [1].
