1

Anterior knee pain DDx

PFP syndrome
patellar tendinopathy

2

Lateral knee pain

* iliotibial band syndrome
* lateral meniscus abnormality
* minor tear
* degenerative change
* cyst

3

Less common of lateral pain

* PF syndrome
* OA of lateral compartment of knee
* Excessive lateral pressure syndrome
* Biceps femoris tendinopathy
* superior tibiofibular joint sprain

4

Less common causes of anterior knee pain

* synovial pilca (synovial fold found along the superior medial edge of patella)
* pre-patellar bursitis ( most common bursitis around knee - tx: NSAIDs, servere = aspiration )
* quadriceps tendinopathy ( pain at quadriceps tendon attachment)
* infrapetellar bursae
* patellofemoral instability

5

Clinical PFP syndrome

* Swelling: small effusion possible
* Clinks/ clunks: occasionally
* Crepitus: occasionally under patella
*
* ROM - decrease if severe
* PFJ movement: restricted in any direction ( common restriction of medial glide to lateral structures)

6

Iliotibial band Syndrome clinical

* tenderness over the LFE 2-3cm above the lateral joint line
* Crepitus
* swelling
* repetitive flexion and extension may aggregate the patients pain
* positive sober test

7

muscles that extend the knee

RVT

Rectus femoris
Vastus lateralis, intermediairs, medialis
TFL

8

muscles that flexes knee

- semimembranousis
- semitendinosis
- biceps femoris
- gastrocnemius
- gracilis
- sartorius

BGGSSS (better get sucking)

9

muscles that laterally rotate tibial at the knee

Rectus femoris

10

Muscles that medially rotate tibia at knee

 Semitendinosus
 Semimembranosus
 Gracilis
 Sartorius
 Popliteus – Lateral condyle of femur
Posterior tibia above
the soleus

11

4 causes of hemarthrosis

Fracture
Meniscal tear
ACL
Patella

12

terrible traid

medial meniscus
MCL
ACL

13

Giving way Ddx

1. Muscle weakness
2. meniscal pathology
3. Pain inhibition
4. cruciate instability
5. loose bosy in joint

14

Peroneal Nerve palsy cause

total knee replacement
