la funcionalidad de este ligamento radica en impedir que la tibia se deslice craneo distal al femur cuando el miembro pelvico sostiene el peso, limitando tambien la rotacion medial de la tibia cuando la articulacion femorotibial
esta flexionada (Evans, 2002).
These patients were aged 40-85 with symptomatic radiographic primary femorotibial
knee OA measuring grade 2 or 3 on the Kellgren-Lawrence scale and a medial minimum joint space width (mJSW) 2.5 mm or greater.
2 years after revision, the X-rays showed a narrowing of the medial femorotibial
compartment (Figure 7).
Assessment of cartilage volume in the femorotibial
joint with magnetic resonance imaging and 3D computer reconstruction.
An MRI study of her right knee ordered by her medical doctor was conducted seven weeks prior to presenting to our clinic and revealed focal severe chondral thinning with deep chondral fissuring and reactive subchondral cystic change over the patellar apex and medial patellar facet with associated full-thickness chondral fissuring over the medial trochlea; moderate chondral thinning and chondral Assuring of articular cartilage in the medial femorotibial
compartment; small to moderate-sized knee joint effusion with mild synovitis; no convincing meniscal tear.
The study included patients from several European countries who were over age 50 and had knee OA of the medial or lateral femorotibial
compartment diagnosed by X-ray.
incongruence can be one of the reasons for many clinical problems, especially MM injuries.
The alignment of the knee joint with the mechanical axis of the isokinetic dynamometer was made with reference to the joint line of the knee joint (femorotibial
), with the tests initiated by the dominant member.
The importance of maintaining a sustained arch during the practice of classical ballet to prevent patellofemoral and femorotibial
joint injuries has been documented.

Demographic data such as age, gender, weight, height, comorbid diseases and concurrent medications, preoperative knee osteoarthritis [OA] condition (as femorotibial
angle measuring from standard long standing knee anteroposterior radiograph, knee osteoarthritis staging regarding Kellgren and Lawrence [KL] classification , and preoperative range-of-motion [ROM]), American Society of Anesthesiologist (ASA) physical status, and preoperative laboratory values (hemoglobin [Hb], platelet count, activated partial prothrombin time [aPTT], international normalized ratio [INR], albumin and creatinine clearance [CrCl]) were collected.
Findings on SPFP size and the relationship with OA have also been equivocal, with one study finding a positive association with femorotibial
OA  and others finding no association with patellofemoral OA [22, 23].
