In one patient after standard arthroscopic exploration of the knee joint through the anterolateral and anteromedial portals, an open en-bloc excision was performed because of the large ganglion cystic formation arising from the infrapatellar
The most common locations of deposition included the infrapatellar
fat pad and anterior joint recess (87%), popliteal groove (78%), and intercondylar roof (69%).
Common sites for bursitis to develop are olecranon, psoas tendon, greater trochanter, iliotibial band, prepatellar, infrapatellar
Newer surgical techniques that aim to remove the infrapatellar
fat pad and hypertrophic synovium without any tendon resection are being developed (Maier et al.
The anatomy of the deep infrapatellar
bursa of the knee.
found out that by inducing pain in the infrapatellar
fat pad, muscle activity of VL decreased significantly during stair-up test (27).
The bilateral suprapatellar bursa (SPB), deep infrapatellar
bursa (DIPB), popliteal bursa (PB), and retrocalcaneal bursa (RCB) were imaged and measured for analysis.
The tibial nail (manufactured by Tasarimmed[R], Istanbul, Turkey) was inserted via a standard infrapatellar
nerve block in human volunteers: description of a novel technique.
Hoffa's disease was first defined as an acute or chronic inflammation of the infrapatellar
fat pad by Albert Hoffa in 1904 (1).
Below the patella, the synovial membrane is separated from the ligamentum patellae by a considerable quantity of fat, known as the infrapatellar
Sharp dissections were carried out both inwards and outwards in the proximal patella and a part of the infrapatellar
fat pad was resected following regular protocols.
