Description

The joint capsule of the knee is a large fibrous sac with a synovial lining that surrounds the articular surfaces between the condyles of the femur and the tibia, as well as the articular surfaces formed between the patella and femur. Additionally, this large capsule projects upward beneath the quadriceps tendon and around other nearby tendons to form various bursae associated with the joint.
