Caption: Ruptured ligaments in a knee joint. This is a frontal view of the left knee with the patella removed. The femur is on the right and the tibia on the left. Ligaments are bands of tissue which join bones together and prevent joints bending beyond a certain range. A twisting force or impact has ruptured the medial collateral ligament (top), including the slip which attaches to the meniscus cartilage of the joint. This is a common sports injury. Treatment is usually with rest and physiotherapy, but ongoing knee instability may indicate that surgery is required to repair the ligament.
