Its function is to provi The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major ligaments of the knee, which passes between the femur and tibia obliquely. Its function is to provide stability to the knee, keeping the leg is moved forward with respect to the thigh. Of the four major ligaments of the knee, the anterior cruciate ligament is the one most commonly injured, especially when a sudden change occurs in the direction of the knee. The most common injuries are torn anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament. Symptoms include pain, inability to walk or stand for long periods, or up and down stairs. For the treatment of both lesions can opt for surgery by arthroscopy or conservative treatment based on rehabilitation to strengthen the muscles. ...

Includes changes in the femur or where it fits in the pelvis and can cause developmental problems. Early diagnosis is crucial to achieve a satisfactory evolution of the hip. Could delay early osteoarthritis. ...
Femur fracture is a break in the bone at the thigh from the hip to the knee, hence you will also call the thigh bone. The fracture can be due to various causes, which must be by a large direct impact, since the femur is the longest and strongest bone in the body. This problem can also be caused by risk factors such as advanced age, postmenopausal osteoporosis, reduction of mass musuclar, suffering from diseases such as osteoporosis or cancer that weaken bones and, finally, the practice of contact sports such as football. Regarding the treatment depends on the degree of injury, since undergoing surgery to a simple splint. ...

Hip arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical technique that lets you view and work directly inside the joint with small incisions in the skin, less than a centimeter each. This type of arthroscopy is indicated to diagnose certain problems of pain or blockage in the hip, for the extraction of intra-articular loose bodies, for breaks labrum (stabilizer cartilage of the femoral head) and the impingement (excess friction in the movements of the hip). The procedure is performed under general anesthesia and after its completion it is possible that the patient may feel discomfort, swelling and numbness in the pubis, for a few hours or days. ...
Hip fracture is a break of the femur bone. The elderly and people with osteoporosis are at increased risk for this type of fracture fragile bones, for a minor injury or a fall can be enough to cause the injury. Instead, most hip fractures in people with normal bone are the result of heavy impacts (such as accidents). In general, the symptoms of hip fracture are unable to walk and intense pain when moving the affected limb lower, taking a shortened position and outward rotation. Treatment usually go through surgery, in which different types of techniques such as nails, plates and full or partial dentures are used. ...
Hip osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease of the cartilage that lines the union of the bones of the pelvis and femur. This fabric easy movement between the bones and prevents them from rubbing. When the cartilage thickness and texture decreases or disappears, the proper meshing between the femur and the pelvis is lost, resulting in hip osteoarthritis. The main indicator of this pathology is pain, which is mainly located in the region of the groin. Hip osteoarthritis is a chronic disease ( lifelong ) and, generally, tends to progress very slowly over the years. Treatment includes rehabilitation exercises, but in the most severe cases can opt for a surgical operation. ...
The hip prosthesis is a major surgical technique involves the replacement of degenerate artificial hip joint. The characteristics of the materials used in this type of prosthesis allow similar to human joint mobility. To manufacture these implants used: various metals such as stainless steel alloys, cobalt, chromium and titanium; plastic, usually polyethylene, a durable and wear-resistant material which is friction. The replacement of the hip prosthesis is indicated in cases of osteoarthritis in the joint or of rheumatoid arthritis. After surgery, patients need crutches for the next month. The prostheses have limited life due to wear of materials. ...
Arthroscopic knee surgery is a minimally invasive surgical technique for accessing the interior of the joint through small holes in the skin. Through a small caliber lens inside the knee is observed and treat various injuries without opening. Arthroscopic knee surgery is used to remove or repair torn meniscus cartilage to anterior cruciate ligament injuries broken, cut broken pieces of articular cartilage, remove loose fragments of bone or cartilage or remove inflamed synovial tissue. Recovery from knee arthroscopy is much faster than traditional surgery. Then the patient must regularly exercise his knee for several weeks. ...
Knee fracture is a break or failure of one of the bones that make up the joint (femur, tibia, fibula and patella). Usually, these bones are injured by falls, traffic accidents, injuries in contact sports and exercise, shock and other injuries. Symptoms of knee fracture are pain, swelling, limited range of motion, deformed leg and inability to walk, among others. Treating knee fracture depends on fractured bone and the type of fracture. If parts of the bones are properly aligned, perhaps it is enough to placing a splint or cast to the knee. However, if the patella is affected, you could specify an operation. Therefore, the recovery of the injury depends on the fractured bone, fracture type, treatment and evolution. ...
Knee osteoarthritis is the wear of the cartilage lining the joint bones ( femur, tibia, fibula and patella ). It is part of the skeleton suffering osteoarthritis more often because it supports your weight and the weight of the items we carry when we stand or when we travel. The cartilage serve to prevent rubbing of the bones in the knee movements, providing slip and cushioning the blows. The wear over the years and aging of cartilage is what causes osteoarthritis. The main symptom of patients with knee osteoarthritis is pain. The treatment includes a rehabilitation exercise program and a series of pharmacological treatments that help to alleviate symptoms of the disease. Furthermore, in obese patients is necessary to follow a diet to lose weight. ...
The knee prosthesis is the replacement of the joint by a plastic part by surgery, is indicated where the joint is seriously damaged by osteoarthritis. The knee prosthesis is indicated when the degree of deterioration of the knee and the pain that generates prevent the patient walk. Such implants are reproductions of the bones forming the knee, made of various metals and plastics favoring flexion and extension of the joint. Allergy to metal alloys patients there titanium knee prosthesis. Usually, the patient who has been implanted with a knee prosthesis can be incorporated to work within three to six months. ...
The lateral collateral ligament (LCL) or lateral collateral ligament is one of four major ligaments that support the knee joint. Connects the femur to the tibia: it goes from the top of the tibia in the lower section of the femur. Its function is not to allow lateral mobility of the knee joint stable and maintain the outer side of the joint. The most common injuries occur by pressure or an injury that pushes the knee joint from the inside, which results in stress on the outside. The symptoms of a rupture or tear of the lateral collateral ligament are: swelling of the knee, blocking knee motion, pain or tenderness on the outer side of the knee, the knee gives way or feels like to do when It is active or voltage. You must make an examination of the lateral collateral ligament laxity possible to study this. It involves bending the knee to 25 degrees and putting pressure on the inner surface. They should also take X-rays of the joint, MRI, among other studies. The patient should apply ice to the area, in addition to anti-inflammatory, knee and constantly raise physical activity until the pain and swelling go away. ...
The medial collateral ligament of the knee is one of the ligaments that support the joint, and limit their movement from side to side. It runs from the inside of the bottom of the thighbone to the inside of the top of the shin bone, ie joins the femur to the tibia. The main injury affecting this area are the medial collateral ligament sprain and rupture of the medial collateral ligament usually caused by trauma to the knee when it is in a flexed position or external rotation and valgus (outward deflection by congenital) malformation. Another complication affecting this ligament is the Pellegrini-Stieda syndrome, which is the ossification of the medial collateral ligament of the knee. ...
Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease that affects the joints and cartilage. Osteoarthritis causes an inability but it is difficult to cause disability. As cartilage progresses and disappear pain occurs, the bone reacts growing on the sides and causing a deformation. ...
Pain is an unpleasant feeling of discomfort and physical suffering that develops in the central nervous system by an internal or external cause of the body. It can be sharp or dull, intermittent or constant, and can affect a particular part of the body or the board. Because pain is a symptom, it can help diagnose an illness or injury, because if a patient did not feel it, you would not realize that it has hurt or suffering from any disease. To relieve pain, different treatments, such as analgesics, acupuncture or surgery, depending on the cause are used. ...
Patellar tendinitis is inflammation of the tendon that connects the kneecap to the tibia. It is located in the front of the knee, just below the kneecap, and intervenes in the movements of knee extension. This tendon can become inflamed and cause pain in the performance of certain activities involving overexertion and repetitive minor trauma. The main symptom of this type of tendinitis of the knee is pain that increases when the tendon force (usually with running, jumping or climbing stairs), and in the most severe cases, can hurt even when walking. The treatment of patellar tendinitis is rest, anti-inflammatories, local application of cold and rehabilitation exercises of the quadriceps muscles. If the above measures no improvement is obtained infiltrations may be required and only sometimes opt for surgery. ...
The posterior cruciate ligament connects the tibia and femur. Its function is to limit the play of the tibia relative to the femur, as well as limiting the tibial external rotation and along the anterior cruciate ligament, the forces applied to restrict the movement of the knee inward or outward, especially when important the knee is flexed. PCL injury may be caused by direct trauma to the front of the tibia that may occur, for example, in an accident in which the knee is bent and a strong impact causing it to bend backwards or is forcibly deformed. When the injury is caused by high-energy trauma, it relates to more serious injuries, fractures of long bones, pelvis or postero-external injuries or other complex structures. In most cases, partial immobilization support is applied for approximately 4 or 8 weeks and once this period is carried out rehabilitation. ...
The stromal vascular fraction (SVF or SVF) is what is obtained by centrifuging and filtering adipose tissue, previously lipoaspirate. Vascular stromal fraction is made up of different cells, including adult stem cells. The stromal vascular fraction favors the presence and arrangement of blood and lymph vessels in tissues and organs, improving circulation and healing. ...
The resurfacing are indicated to place in areas such as the hip or knee, and are more suitable for patients under 65 years. Its main feature is that it allows large amount preserve bone, and usually last longer than conventional. ...
