A shift in the Minor Injuries Unit
SE/C02/907: Knee Pain
Man sitting
Back to St Emlyn's Reception


No acute fracture can be identified in this rather demineralised appearing knee. No evidence of a soft tissue abnormality is seen.

There are some minor degenerative changes noted around the knee joint with some narrowing seen of the medial tibiofemoral joint compartment. There is evidence of osteophytosis seen at the articular margins of the tibiofemoral joints also. Small osteophytes are also seen to arise from the superior and inferior margins of the articular surface of the patella.

The bones appear rather demineralised for someone of the patient's age.
