Difference between patellate and patella
- a small flat triangular bone in front of the knee that protects the knee joint
I would expect the government to fight a lawsuit trying to prevent something like this, just as I would expect a leg to bounce up when its patellar reflex is hit with a tendon hammer.
Encourage the patient to relax the quadriceps and push the patella medially back into place.
The medial and lateral portions of the tendon of the Quadriceps pass down on either side of the patella, to be inserted into the upper extremity of the tibia on either side of the tuberosity; these portions merge into the capsule, as stated above, forming the medial and lateral patellar retinacula.
