The medial and lateral condyles were located medially and laterally, respectively, relative to the tibial center throughout the flexion arc (Table 1).
With greater knee flexion, the bony confines of the lateral femoral condyle and the trochlear groove capture the patella and provide stability.
It is important to recognize that the medial tibial plateau is normally approximately 1 cm anterior to the medial femoral condyle.
He subsequently sustained a similar insufficiency fracture with subchondral collapse in the medial femoral condyle for which they performed arthroscopic debridement.
Using posterior condyles as a reference the surgeon has to make a decision regarding the anterior femoral resection level in order to achieve the "downsize without notching" goal.
During an open procedure, the periphery of both femoral condyles at the level of the patellofemoral joint can serve as donor sites.
Density of the sclerotic subchondral region in both femoral and tibial condyle was measured in plain radiographs taken before surgery and at follow-up examinations with a densitometer (Sakura PDA-65, Sakura Co.
Two specimens recovered by screenwashing sediments consist of portions of lower jaws, one containing the m2 (second lower molar) and nearly complete posterior portion of the jawbone with articular condyle, and the other containing the ml (first lower molar).
1: GAL) arises by a short tendon from the lateral surface of the lateral condyle of the femur.
Both the reconstructed coronal and corrected sagittal views were assessed for the shape of the mandibular condyle, presence of any bony abnormalities, and condylar position during maximal mouth opening by using the CT TMJ score.
The femoral condyle area and tibial surface were resected together with subchondral bone, fixed in formalin, decalcified with Plank-Rycho solution, cut into sections, and stained with Safranin-O.
Failure to diagnose early may lead to irreversible damage to the condyles, eminence, ligaments and dentition.
