    A surgical nurse prepares instruments and sutures for yet another cruciate ligament operation at the Riga 1st Hospital. This is a common sports injury and here at Latvia’s oldest hospital - with more than 200 years’ experience of emergency care - hundreds of these operations are performed every year. When surgeons reconstruct the anterior cruciate ligament, they typically build a new ligament with the help of a tendon from the back of the thigh or part of the kneecap.
