Subcapital (where neck joins head) fracture of the femoral neck. A, Notice the compressed trabeculation and resulting radiodense band on the inferior margin of the femur (arrowheads) and cortical disruption on the distracted superior margin of the fractured femur (arrow) .

Like the elbow, the primary function of the knee is to lengthen and shorten the limb (helps hip position foot) Example: 1) knee shortens lower extremity to allow foot to clear ground during swing phase of gait; 2) lengthens lower extremity toward ground for stance phase Role of telescoping knee is complicated by: 1. Knee is weight bearing 2. Located between the 2 longest bones (femur, tibia) 3. Motion of foot on ground causes twisting motion of tibia and hence knee Pure hinge joint won’t cut it. Need complex 3-D motion. Knee (Genu)

KNEE JOINT COMPLEX Largest joint in body Type: Compound, Diarthroidial and effectively ginglymus (hinge) a) Condylar (modified hinge)- Two large convex condyles of femur articulate with nearly flat tibial plateaus (primary joint - tibiofemoral joint) b) Patella articulates with patella surface of femur (patellofemoral joint) Tibiofemoral joint large surface area of femoral condyles allows sagittal plane motion stability from body weight, lig’s, capsule, menisci, forces

KNEE JOINT Capsule - encloses medial and lateral tibiofemoral joints, patellofemoral joint (does not cover anterior surface -quadriceps covers) Menisci are circular rims of fibrocartilage discs in knee joint Menisci anchored to intercondylar tibial region Lateral – is an incomplete circle Medial – “C” shaped Thick peripheral borders & taper to a thin inner edge Mensci Function to reduce compression stress reduce friction, guide motion 2200 joint contact by almost 3x shock absorbers, deformation torn meniscus?
