Caption: Knee anatomy. Artwork of the ligaments of the knee joint. Ligament connects bone to bone. The knee joins the femur (thigh bone, top) to the tibia (shin bone, bottom). The fibula (calf bone, left) and patella (kneecap) also make up the knee joint. At centre, covering the ends of the femur and tibia, are the menisci. These are pads of cartilage that cushion the joint against impact. Between the menisci are the anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments. These form a cross in the middle of the joint, preventing overextension and overflexion of the knee. On either side of the joint are the medial (inside) and lateral (outside) collateral ligaments that prevent the femur from sliding side to side.
