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.
