These fractured at the junction of the posterior bevel and the distal surface of the medial femoral condyle.
These structures extend from the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus superomedially to the inner aspect of the medial femoral condyle (Figure 22).
A, There are changes consistent with osteoarthritis with eburnation and subchondral sclerosis present on the medial femoral condyle and medial tibial plateau.
Coronal sections of (A) proton density-weighted, (B) T1-weighted fat-suppressed, and (C) T2-weighted fat-suppressed sequences show a heterogeneous gadolinium-enhancing solid mass in the joint capsule along the anteromedial surface of medial femoral condyle with amorphous low-signal foci (arrows in A), consistent with PVNS.
Palpation will often elicit a localized area of tenderness over the medial femoral condyle just proximal to the joint line in the flexed knee.
Medial impact occurred directly to the medial femoral condyle while the affected knee was in greater than 90[degrees] flexion with an element of adduction and internal rotation, which led to a medial Hoffa fracture.
Evaluating the efficacy of lavage and debridement, Hubbard compared simple lavage with shaving chondroplasty in 76 patients with focal grade 3 and 4 lesions of the medial femoral condyle.
The sulcus angle is the angle formed between a line drawn from the center of the deepest portion of the trochlea to the medial femoral condyle and one to the lateral femoral condyle.
The patellar button is offset and chamfered on its medial side to create an odd facet and avoid impingement on the medial femoral condyle in deep flexion.
It originates approximately 10 mm inferior to the joint line of the posterior tibia and extends in an anteromedial direction to attach to the lateral aspect of the medial femoral condyle.
Traditionally, the progression of knee OA has been assessed by measuring changes in the width of the space between the medial femoral condyle and medial tibial plateau on plain radiographs.
When flexion is greater than 90[degrees], the contact area returns to the center of the patella; and when the knee is fully flexed, the inner border of the medial femoral condyle is in contact with the small vertical ridge of the medial facet.
