Caption: Knee sports injury. Illustration of torn knee cartilage in a sports injury. The head of the tibia (shin bone, brown) is viewed from above, showing white cartilage and ligaments. At left, a red tear is seen in the medial meniscus cartilage; at right is the cup-shaped lateral meniscus. At centre are cut ends of two cruciate ligaments; the patella (knee cap) is oval-shaped at top. The femur (thigh bone) articulates with this surface, forming the knee joint which is a strong hinge joint capable of flexion, extension, and slight rotation. Injury to the knee: its cartilage and ligaments, is common in athletes. Keyhole surgery is used to repair torn cartilage and ligaments.
