A multi-page Primer

This Primer focuses upon bone breaks involving the knee.

Knee fractures may involve the long bones of tibia and femur , or the small patellar bone or the fibula . Sometimes they are hard to spot on X-ray, or may be missed because the doctors are focusing on associated soft tissue injuries. Also some may be avulsion fractures, where tendons have been torn off, taking a fragment of bone with them.
