The area of focus of this title is hip, knee and lower extremity and resident information. The knowledge of knee anatomy is crucial to performing a successful operation on the knee. The various structures that work in concert to provide the unique function of the knee can be injured, leading to aberrations in knee anatomy and function. Understanding these anatomical relationships will help the surgeon to define disease and to succeed in the operating room. To enhance the educational experience of the practicing surgeon, the visual presentation incorporates anatomical images, illustrations, and video; the narrative includes clinical pearls for each anatomical description. The anatomy is layered, starting with the superficial neurovascular structures and ending with the deep muscles and tendons that surround the knee joint capsule. Each anatomical region of the knee is preceded with a detailed illustration and anatomical image that augments the viewers understanding of knee anatomy. Understanding anatomy is one of the best predictors of success in the orthopaedic operating room and in clinical practice; this video reviews the anterior, medial, and posteromedial anatomy of the knee that is appropriate for all active orthopedic surgeons.
