Caption: Damaged knee. Artwork of the internal damage sustained in the knee in conditions such as arthritis. This joint is where the thigh bone (femur) articulates with the tibia, the larger of the two lower leg bones. In a healthy knee, cartilage and synovial fluid in the joint ensures ensure smooth movement. Here, wear and tear and inflammation has led to damage (green and red) as the cartilage is worn away. This causes pain as the bones grind against each other. In severe cases, a knee replacement operation may be needed. Also shown here are the patella (knee-cap, left of femur head) and muscles (red) and tendons and ligaments (white).
