Hi, can anyone tell me what 'loose body under patella' means? I have seen it mentioned on several posts.

Hi
It's a bit that's broken off from somewhere and is floating round under the kneecap or in the joint somewhere. It can be cartilege or bone or...whatever! They can get trapped and cause locking and/or pain.
