Knee Region Basic Anatomy

Knee joint can be divided into two parts, the tibio-femoral joint and patello-femoral joint. The Anterior and Posterior Cruciate Ligaments, Medial and Lateral Collateral Ligaments help to stabilise the knee joint to prevent excessive gilding over of femur on tibia. 

Patellofemoral joint is a modified plane joint. The patella gilds on femur when bending or straightening knee, following the pathway formed by contour of distal femur and muscle tension by medial and lateral thigh muscle groups. The Screw home mechanism is easily impaired with muscle imbalance, and it will further cause the tearing of patellar cartilage.
