  • femoral
  • The center of pressure between the femoral component and the tibial component moves rearward on the tibia during the minor segment. (google.com)
  • This movement directs the forces directly up the tibia into the knee, while the straight-knee position places the anterior femoral condyle on the back-slanted portion of the tibia. (wikipedia.org)
  • proximal tibia
  • and University of Pittsburgh, Department of Orthopaedics, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA Purpose: Severe proximal tibia fractures, which include intra- and extraarticular fractures with metaphyseal-diaphyseal dissociation, pose a difficult treatment problem for the surgeon with significant complication rates. (orthopaedicweblinks.com)
  • Methods: We treated 118 cases of proximal tibia fracture, of which 52 were treated with hybrid external fixation as part of a protocol that used a consistent approach and method of hybrid external fixation. (orthopaedicweblinks.com)
  • All proximal tibia fractures healed without additional procedures. (orthopaedicweblinks.com)
  • The main surgical wound is over the upper proximal tibia, which prevents the typical pain experienced when kneeling after surgery. (wikipedia.org)
  • cartilage
  • During pregnancy in mice, relaxin is involved in transformation of pubic joint cartilage into a more flexible and elastic interpubic ligament in order to accommodate the enlarging uterus [ 11 ]. (medsci.org)
  • Anteriorly, the synovial membrane is attached on the margin of the cartilage both on the femur and the tibia, but on the femur, the suprapatellar bursa or recess extends the joint space proximally. (wikipedia.org)
  • Joint fluid's other role is to provide nutrition to the cartilage and the cruciate ligaments. (wikipedia.org)
  • Tear
  • This will make the ligaments to stretch causing them to tear towards the inner side. (infobarrel.com)
  • The situation is a little like a chicken-and-egg scenario: it is usually accepted that the CrCL ruptures because arthritis has caused the ligament to weaken because of poor joint fluid characteristics, but what causes the arthritis in the first place - a partial cruciate tear? (wikipedia.org)
  • ACL injuries can be categorized into groups- contact and non-contact based on the nature of the injury Contact injuries occur when a person or object come into contact with the knee causing the ligament to tear. (wikipedia.org)
  • In a complete tear, the tendon separates completely from the top of the tibia which results in the inability to straighten one's leg. (wikipedia.org)
  • The second form of rupturing the patellar tendon is a partial tear. (wikipedia.org)
  • occurs
  • Type II: The articular surface of the tibia remains intact and the fracture occurs at the junction where the secondary center of ossification and the proximal tibial epiphysis come together (may or may not require surgery). (wikipedia.org)
  • A patellar dislocation typically occurs when the knee is straight and the lower leg is bent outwards when twisting. (wikipedia.org)
  • Patellar dislocation occurs in sports that involve rotating the knee. (wikipedia.org)
  • Trauma to the equivalent ligament in humans is common, and damage most frequently occurs during some form of sporting activity (including football, rugby and golf). (wikipedia.org)
