Caption: Damaged knee. Artwork showing the internal anatomy of a damaged human knee, with an inset (bottom) of the cartilage (grey) that covers the ends of the bones forming this joint. The cartilage cushions the joint, ensuring smooth movement. Here, the cartilage has been worn away. Such wear and tear is seen in osteoarthritis. Damage to the ligaments (white straps) is also seen. If they snap, surgery may be required to repair them. The bones are the femur (thigh bone, upper right), the patella (knee-cap, left), and the lower leg bones the tibia (bottom, left) and fibula (bottom, right). In cases of severe damage, the entire joint may be replaced.
