patellar loose body
« on: January 19, 2006, 06:36:47 PM »
Hi, can anyone tell me what 'loose body under patella' means? I have seen it mentioned on several posts.
LEFT KNEE: ACL and medial meniscal tear Sept 05.
Arthroscopy Jan 06.
Hamstring ACLR Apr 06.

RIGHT KNEE: meniscal tear 2008. Partial meniscectomy 2008 and again 2009.

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.
