Knee Outline


Knee outline

  • Designed to

    • Provide Stability

    • Provide Mobility

Knee


Bones

  • Femur

    • Longest and the strongest

  • Patella

    • Sesamoid = bone within tendon, shock absorption

  • Tibia

    • Primary weight bearing bone in lower leg

  • Fibula

    • Bears no weight, attachment site for muscles

    • Gives stability to ankle

Bones


Ligaments

  • Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL)

    • Protects from medial displacement

  • Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL)

    • Protects from lateral displacement

  • Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL)

    • Most frequently ruptured, protects from anterior tibia motion

    • Originates on anterior tibial plateau, and on posterior femur

  • Posterior Cruciate Ligament (PCL)

    • Protects from posterior displacement

Ligaments


Cartilage

  • Medial Meniscus

    • C shaped

  • Lateral Meniscus

    • O shaped

Cartilage
