FROM OUR EXPERTS
Knee pain is a common problem among the young and old alike. From athletes to middle-aged adults to seniors, knee pain can develop suddenly. There are many potential causes owing to the fact that there can be ligament involvement, cartilage tears, muscle strains, cysts, arthritis, and more. Most of the time, knee pain is felt in the front of the knee or along either side. Posteromedial pain (inside back corner) is less common and more puzzling -- especially when it lasts a long time. The authors of this article bring to our attention the possible causes of posteromedial knee pain. In particular, the focus is on one that is infrequent but should be considered: semimembranosus tendinopathy . The semimembranosus muscle is part of what you might know otherwise as the hamstring muscle. It is made up of three separate but conjoined parts. This portion starts at the base of your sit bone (called the ischial tuberosity ). It travels down from the pelvis to the knee and inserts right along the po...

The middle third of the right patellar tendon was used as a graft to repair the ACL. The night after surgery she had an avulsion fracture of the tibia. This means the remaining patellar tendon pulled away from the bone where it normally inserts. Another operation was needed to repair the fracture. In the second case a 39-year-old woman had a right ACL repair two years ago. She went to the orthopedic surgeon with reports of right knee pain. She had surgery to repair a torn meniscus and revise the previous ACL repair. A piece of her patellar tendon taken from the other leg was used to repair the ACL. The same day while pivoting to move from a stretcher to a wheelchair, she felt a pop...
