"The patient came to me with the classic symptoms of stiffness, groin pain and referred pain to the knee region. The clinical condition of the hip joint could significantly affect the adjacent joint which is the knee joint so a surgery had to be done sooner," said Dr Tolessa, senior orthopaedic consultant and medical director at DOC Medical Center, Doha.
In addition, in case 1, the disease migrated to the knee region 3 months after the involvement of the hip.
The aim of a large portion of morphometric studies involving the tibia is the delineation of the profile of the knee area or a description and differentiation of regions of the tibia in particular populations to provide a method for evaluating deformities in the knee region for medical purposes, such as guiding treatments and knee replacement surgeries (Kwak et al., 2007; Gandhi et al.; Moghtadaei et al., 2015).
The location of the chronic expanding hematoma was in the lower extremity in all patients: the thigh was involved in 4 patients and the knee region in 3 patients.
The evidence for combined exercise programmes, including range of motion (ROM), stretching, isometric, isotonic and isokinetic strengthening exercises targeting knee region muscles are commonly used in the treatment.

Effusions and swelling in the knee region are common presenting complaints among athletes and nonathletes.
Purpura on the left plantar region in the absence of blisters was observed 3 days prior to admission (Figure 1(a)), and petechiae on the lower abdomen (Figure 1(b)) and the left knee region (Figure 1(c)) were noticed 5 days prior to admission.

The dynamic load-lines collected at different load and drive conditions map out a separate RF knee region. This device had two well-understood problems often seen with early GaN devices; current slump and knee walkout.
Clinically, this study is useful because it confirms that patients with PFPS are likely to present with weakness of the hip muscles, reminding physiotherapists of the importance of considering the whole lower kinetic chain when assessing the knee region. However, evidence is needed to determine whether strengthening the hip musculature is an effective means of improving patient outcomes.
