Close to its posterior attachment it gives off a small band of fibres (fasciculus), hnown as the posterior meniscofemoral ligament, or the ligament of Wrisberg, passing upward and medially to insert into the medial condyle of the femur, immediately behind the attachment of the posterior cruciate ligament.
