    • 1. MOB TCD Knee Professor Emeritus Moira O’Brien FRCPI, FFSEM, FFSEM (UK), FTCD Trinity College Dublin
    • 2. MOB TCD Knee Joint • • • • • Synovial condylar joint Close pack Full extension Least pack 15 degree flexion
    • 3. MOB TCD Anatomy of Knee Joint
    • 4. MOB TCD Bones • The articular surfaces are the medial and lateral femoral condyles (the intercondylar notch in between) • The medial condyle has a longer articular surface • The superior aspect of the medial and lateral tibial condyles • The posterior aspect of the patella
    • 5. MOB TCD Intercondylar Notch • Average is 17 mm • Narrow notch more likely to tear ACL
    • 6. MOB TCD Bones
    • 7. MOB TCD Patella • • • • • Sesamoid bone Thickest articular cartilage in body Smaller medial facet Q-angle Controlled by Vastus Medialis Obliquus (VMO) and Vastus Lateralis Obliquus (VLO)
    • 8. MOB TCD Patella • The patella is controlled by the oblique portions of the vastus medialis and vastus lateralis. • The vastus medialis wastes within 24 hours after an effusion of the knee • If the oblique fibers of the vastus medialis are wasted, the patella tends to sublux laterally on extension of the knee. This results in retropatellar pain
    • 9. MOB TCD Patella
    • 10. MOB TCD Weak Vastus Medialis Obliquus • Lower most fibres of vastus medialis • Partly arise adductor magnus • Straightens the pull on the quads tendon and patella • Controls patella tracking during flexion extension of the knee • Fibres atrophy quickly after knee injury • 10-15 ml of effusion inhibit VMO • VMO rehabilitation strength and timing of contraction
    • 11. MOB TCD Deficiency of Lateral Condyle
    • 12. MOB TCD Capsular Ligaments • • • • • • Quadriceps Retinacular fibres Patellar tendon Coronary ligaments Medial and lateral ligaments Posterior oblique ligament
    • 13. Capsule Attachments • • • • Quadriceps tendon The patella The patellar ligament Retinacular fibres all form the anterior part of the capsule • The patellar ligament is the insertion of the quadriceps tendon MOB TCD
    • 14. Patellar Ligament • Antero-inferiorly is attached to the tuberosity of the tibia • On either side the retinacular fibres pass upwards from the tuberosity in a V-shaped manner to be attached just below the articular margin • The deep infrapatellar bursa and infrapatellar pad of fat lie posterior to it, separating it from the tibia MOB TCD
    • 15. Capsule Attachments • Laterally, the attachment is just beyond the articular margin • Laterally, it is attached above the groove for the popliteus, below the lateral epicondyle • There is a gap in the capsule to allow the popliteus to emerge MOB TCD
    • 16. Capsule Attachments • Posterior • Superiorly, it is attached just beyond the articular margin and to the lower border of the popliteal surface of the femur, above the intercondylar notch MOB TCD
    • 17. Capsule Attachments • Postero-inferiorly, the capsule is attached to the medial condyle of the tibia • By a line running above the groove for the semimembranosus tendon • Below the attachment of the posterior cruciate ligament MOB TCD

    • 21. Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) or Tibial Collateral Ligament • Is attached superiorly to the medial • • • • • • epicondyle of the femur It blends with the capsule Attached to the upper third of the tibia, as far down as the tibial tuberosity It has a superficial and deep portion The deep portion, which is short, fuses with the capsule Attached to the medial meniscus A bursa usually separates the two parts MOB TCD
    • 22. Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) or Tibial Collateral Ligament • The tendons of sartorius, gracilis • and semitendinosus cross its tibial attachment where another bursa is situated The anterior part tightens during the first 70–105°of flexion MOB TCD
    • 23. MOB TCD Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL) • Medial ligament, tightens in • • • • extension And at the extremes of medial and lateral rotation A valgus stress will put a strain on the ligament If gapping occurs when the knee is extended, this is due to a tear of posterior medial part of capsule If gapping only occurs at 15º flexion, this is due to tear of medial ligament
    • 24. MOB TCD Medial Ligament Netter
    • 25. Posterior Medial Structures • Semimembranosus into the groove on posterior aspect of medial tibial condyle and its extensions • Upwards and lateral is oblique popliteal ligament • Downwards and lateral forms fascia covering popliteus • Downwards and medially fuses with medial ligament MOB TCD
    • 26. Oblique Popliteal Ligament • Oblique popliteal ligament passes upwards and laterally • Fuses with the fabella if present • Capsule above lateral femoral condyle • Pierced by middle genicular vessels and nerve • Posterior division of obturator nerve • Popliteal artery lies on it MOB TCD
    • 27. Oblique Popliteal Ligament • Strengthens the posterior portion of the capsule and prevents extreme lateral rotation • It is an expansion from the semimembranosus tendon close to its insertion to the tibia • Branch from the posterior division of the obturator nerve, pierces the ligament, supplies cruciates and articular twig to knee (referred pain from pelvic peritoneum to knee) MOB TCD
    • 28. Lateral Structures Netter MOB TCD

    • 31. MOB TCD Lateral Ligament • Deep in interval between iliotibial band and biceps • Lateral epicondyle of femur • Midpoint superior surface of fibula and the styloid process of the fibula • It is a cord-like structure that is separated from the capsule by the tendon of the popliteus • Surrounded by biceps Fabbriciani & Oransky, 1992
    • 32. MOB TCD Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) • Deep to lateral collateral ligament • Popliteus • Inferolateral genicular vessels and nerve
    • 33. Lateral Collateral Ligament (LCL) or Fibular Collateral Ligament • Taut in extension • 20°flexion, lateral ligament complex more lax than medial • Primary lateral restraint to varus loading • Arcuate ligament is the edge of capsule that arches above the popliteus MOB TCD
    • 34. Arcuate Ligament • Passes from the tip of the styloid process • Just posterior to the lateral ligament • Blends origin of the lateral head of gastrocnemius and oblique popliteal ligament • Edge of capsule arches over popliteus and may give partial origin to popliteus MOB TCD
    • 35. MOB TCD Fabella • Fabella lies at point on the poster lateral side of knee • Where multidirectional collagenous tensile stress meet • 8% - 10% osseous • 90% - 92% cartilagenous Fabbricani & Oransky, 1992
    • 36. Coronary Ligament • Connects the periphery of the menisci to the tibia • They are the portion of the capsule that is stressed in rotary movements of the knee MOB TCD
    • 37. MOB TCD Popliteus • Origin inferior, popliteal surface of tibia, above the soleal line, fascia of semimembranosus • Deep to arcuate popliteal ligament • Enters capsule • Crosses lateral surface of lateral meniscus • Attached by popliteal-meniscal fibres which bound hiatus
    • 38. MOB TCD Popliteus • Enters hiatus • Crosses femoral condyle • Deep to lateral collateral ligament • Inserts into anterior part of groove • Superior popliteal recess communicates joint
    • 39. MOB TCD Popliteus • Femoral condyles rotate medially around taut ACL during the locking mechanism of the knee • Popliteus laterally rotates the femur to unlock the knee so flexion can occur
    • 40. MOB TCD Iliotibial Tract • The iliotibial tract is a thickening of the deep fascia of the thigh, fascia lata • The tract is attached to Gerdy’s tubercle on the anterolateral aspect of the lateral tibial condyle • The superficial three quarters of the gluteus maximus end in a thick tendinous lamina which is inserted into the iliotibial tract • The tensor fascia lata is also inserted into the tract • Gives origin to the oblique fibres of the vastus lateralis that help to stabilise the patella
    • 41. MOB TCD Iliotibial Tract • In full knee extension the tract lies anteriorly to the line of flexion of the knee, • As it is free of bony attachments between the lateral femoral epicondyle and Gerdy’s tubercle • It is free to move posteriorly to this axis on flexion of the knee Standish & Wood, 1996. • As the tract crosses the lateral epicondyle of the femur a bursitis may develop as the result of a ‘long-leg syndrome’
    • 42. MOB TCD Iliotibial Tract • The iliotibial band acts as an extensor of the knee when the knee is flexed from 0°to 30°and as a flexor when the knee is flexed more than 40°, due to the change in the transverse axis which occurs at 30–40°flexion. • The pelvic tilt is a mechanism for tightening the iliotibial band. The pull of the band stabilises the knee in extension, as well as helping to resist extension and adduction of the hip of the weight-bearing leg
    • 43. MOB TCD Movements of the Knee Joint • Flexion and extension take place between the femoral condyles and the upper surface of the menisci • Rotation occurs between lower surface of the menisci and upper surface of the tibia
    • 44. MOB TCD Extension Screw Home • Contraction of the quadriceps results in extension • The anterior cruciate becomes taut • And medial rotation of the femur occurs around the taut anterior cruciate to accommodate the longer surface of the medial condyle
    • 45. Flexion • Femoral condyles rotate medially around taut ACL during the locking mechanism of the knee • Popliteus laterally rotates the femur to unlock the knee • So flexion can occur • Then the hamstrings flex the knee MOB TCD
