When the parameters associated with anterior cruciate ligament injury were included in the analysis, there was an independent association between anterior cruciate ligament and contusion of lateral femoral condyle, medial femoral condyle, and lateral tibial plateau (Table 4).

Classically, SONK is described as a focal lesion occurring in the medial femoral condyle, and in the tibial plateau in a small proportion of cases.
Vascularized medial femoral condyle graft for management of scaphoid non-union.
Although there was no correlation between clinical characteristics, imaging findings and Q-angles of all participants, we found correlations between the Q-angle measurements and cartilage grading by US (r = 0.435, p = 0.033), K-L grading (r = 0.435, p = 0.021) and medial femoral condyle thickness (r = -0.399, p = 0.036).
The significant advantages of using a flexible reamer is the avoidance of the medial femoral condyle articular cartilage, and can curve around the medial condyle as pointed out by previous studies.
In the medial compartment, the width of the medial femoral condyle was determined and JSW was measured starting from the medial aspect of the condyle to a point equal to 50% of the total width of the condyle.
This structure coursed horizontally, immediately inferior to the distal portion of the vastus medialis obliquus, and inserted in the medial femoral condyle slightly anterior to the insertion of the adductor magnus and proximal to the origin of the medial collateral ligament.
Plain radiographs were taken and demonstrated a multiseptated "soap bubbly" lytic lesion in the medial femoral condyle (Figure 1).
The radiographs obtained in 2013 and 2015, two and four years, respectively, after the metaphyseal lesion was seen on the initial MRI, showed a well-marginated, locally aggressive, eccentric lesion in the right medial femoral condyle extending from the metaphysis to the epiphysis (Figure 2).
This terminal rotation is made possible by the shape of the medial femoral condyle, assisted by the iliotibial tract and is caused by the stretching of the anterior cruciate ligament.
