(1.37)

Besides being the largest joint in the body, the knee joint is also much the most complicated! Before we move on to look at the muscles which produce knee movement, let’s review what we’ve seen of the bones, and of the knee joint.

On the femur, here’s the lateral condyle, and epicondyle; the medial condyle, and epicondyle; the adductor tubercle, and the intercondylar notch.

On the tibia, here’s the lateral condyle, the medial condyle, the tibial tubercle, and the facet for the fibula.

Here’s the head of the fibula, the neck of the fibula, the proximal tibio-fibular joint, and the patella.
