The Human Knee: Gross, Microscopic, Surgical, and Radiological Anatomy

Description

Traditional knee implants have been designed based on the combined average size and shape of male and female knee anatomy. Sex-based research has led to new understanding of the anatomic differences between the sexes and the associated implications for women undergoing total knee arthroplasty.

Injuries of the lateral compartment of the knee are also less common than injuries of the medial compartment and usually misdiagnosed. The posterolateral structures of the knee joint may not always appear on images obtained with routine MR imaging protocols.

We invite investigators to contribute original research articles as well as review articles in the field of anatomy of the knee. We are particularly interested in articles describing their research on significant anatomic differences in the shape and size of female knees compared with male knees and also on surgical and radiological anatomy of the knee. Biomechanics and studies investigating relationships between shape and function are also included. Experimental studies related to implant design and studies on microscopic anatomy are also welcomed. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Gross anatomy of the knee (bone morphology, cartilage thickness measurements, ligaments and meniscus origin, and insertion sites)
  • Biomechanics and functional anatomy of the knee
  • Histological components of the knee from immune mechanisms and inflammation
  • Surgical anatomy of the knee
  • Radiological anatomy of the knee (especially on specific MRI imaging protocols for visualization of each anatomical structure of the knee)

Before submission authors should carefully read over the journal's Author Guidelines, which are located at http://www.hindawi.com/journals/ari/guidelines/. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal Manuscript Tracking System at http://mts.hindawi.com/ according to the following timetable:
