Intercondylar Notch
« on: March 09, 2015, 11:27:42 PM »
Hello there,

I have a knee complaint like pretty much most people here..... :-[....I won't go into detail yet but will do later on.  There is something in particular I need to know or get to the crux of......

I have some early sign of osteophyte (bone spur) on the intercondylar notch [fossa] which underneath the patella [knee cap]- Do these generally speaking impinge or interfear with the knee cap?-

If the answer is yes then it needs to be removed - If the answer is no then it may be possible to leave it alone providing no other structures are affected.

If people do have these removed is the surgery done via keyhole [nice-n-simple] or is it more invasive?

Any other useful information please feel free to comment..........
