Background. Knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure to replace the weight-bearing surfaces of the knee joint in order to relieve pain and disability, which is commonly performed for osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis [].Since its first performance in , improvements of knee replacement surgery in terms of surgical materials and techniques have greatly increased its effectiveness [].Cited by: 9. 1. Author(s): Kwakye,Lawrence Bediako Title(s): The venous drainage of the human knee joint: (with a summary in Dutch)/ door Lawrence Bediako Kwakye. Country of Publication: Netherlands Publisher: Purmerend [Netherlands]: Nooy's Drukkerij, Description: p.: ill. Language: English MeSH: Knee Joint/blood supply* NLM ID: [Book].   The knee is a complex joint that flexes, extends, and twists slightly from side to side. The knee is the meeting point of the femur (thigh bone) in the upper leg and the tibia (shinbone) in the. Knee bursitis: Pain, swelling, and warmth in any of the bursae of the knee. Bursitis often occurs from overuse or injury. Baker’s cyst: Collection of fluid in the back of the knee.

  Relieving Tense Effusion – When knee swelling is large or tense or pain causes discomfort, drainage of fluid helps to relieve the pressure and pain. 2 Reduction in swelling and decreased tension aids in improving joint movement. Drainage of Infected Fluid – In a known infective condition, drainage of septic effusion can help in providing relief, improve joint movement and . knee stability, biomechanics (Sports Med Arthrosc Rev ;–92) T he knee can be conceptualized as 2 joints—a tibiofe-moral and a patellofemoral joint. The tibiofemoral joint allows transmission of body weight from the femur to the tibia while providing hinge-like, sagittal plane joint rotation along with a small degree of tibial axial. The thorax is the area of the body situated between the neck and the abdomen. The thorax itself can be split up into various areas that contain important structures.. The thorax is bound by bony structures including the 12 pairs of ribs and thoracic vertebrae, whilst also being supported by many ligaments and muscles.. The muscles of the thorax are also important for the vital actions of. The deep venous system includes the iliac, femoral, popliteal and deep femoral veins. The deep veins generally run parallel to the corresponding arteries. These two venous systems are separated from each other by connective tissue fascia and muscles and are connected by a third venous system – the perforating veins (=communicating veins).

Venous Drainage The venous circulation of the central nervous system is particular in that (1) the veins do not run parallel to arteries as in many other organs and (2) the major fraction of blood that drains the brain is collected in the dural sinuses, which represent the final intracranial collecting blood vessels. 4 Briefly, there are three. The venous drainage of the lower limb is of huge clinical & surgical importance. Since the venous blood of the lower limb is drained against gravity, however, there are number of factors that help the drainage: where lies the posteromedial aspect of the knee joint, about one hand-breadth posterior to . The knee joint is a synovial joint which connects the femur (thigh bone), the longest bone in the body, to the tibia (shin bone). There are two main joints in the knee: 1) the tibiofemoral joint where the tibia meet the femur 2) the patellofemoral joint where the kneecap (or patella) meets the femur. The superficial venous system consists mainly of two large veins namely the great saphenous vein and small saphenous vein. The small saphenous vein arises from the lateral aspect of the dorsal venous arch. It passes behind the lateral malleolus, ascends behind the leg and final joins the popliteal vein behind the knee joint.
