Sample text

At about the same time, the cruciate ligaments, menisci and joint capsule also form. Rudimentary cartilage lines the surfaces of the tibia, femur and patella by 8 weeks’ gestation. Initially the patella, femur and tibia are separated from each other by membranes. By the third month of gestation the knee exists as a cartilaginous structure with adult form. During the early gestational period the patella lies superior to the joint but soon migrates to its appropriate position, dragging the quadriceps tendon with it.

Clinical presentation Nerves The neural topography of the lower extremity will be clinically significant when evaluating a child with hip problems. Very often, dysfunction in the lower extremity will refer to another joint. For example, hip pathology may refer to the knee and tibia, or into the sacroiliac area, and ankle pain may refer to the hip or knee. It is necessary to understand the structural relationships, since the most common complaint in this area is pain. The physician must differentiate and recognize the significance of pain following myotomes, dermatomes and sclerotomes, from pain generated by a muscle or by a nerve itself.

The position of the patella is also influenced by its myofascial attachments. Incomplete or inadequate insertion of the vastus medialis oblique onto the superior surface of the patella causes the patella to tilt laterally during knee extension. This can increase the compressive forces on the lateral facet and trochlea. Lateral tilt is also the result of a shortened or tight lateral retinaculum. 34 Fig. 19 • Medial view of a dissected knee joint.
