The knee joint is the largest joint in the human body. It consists of bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons, and other tissues. The ligaments provide stability during loading while the muscles around the knee have a secondary role in stabilising this joint. The stability of the knee is impacted if these structures are compromised. This course discusses the key anatomical structures of the knee, including the bones, articulations, ligaments, muscles, and nerve and vascular supply.
