Femur lateral epicondyle
Smaller and less prominent, gives attachment to the fibular collateral ligament of the knee-joint. Located on the distal end of the femur. Rough surface, lateral and superior to the lateral condyle
Femur medial epicondyle
Larger and more prominent, gives attachment to the tibular collateral ligament of the knee-joint. Located on the distal end of the femur. Rough surface, medial and superior to the lateral condyle
*larger, medial, weight-bearing bone of leg
*lateral & medial condyles at proximal end articulate w/ femur
*articulates distally w/ talus & fibula
*tibial tuberosity- attachment site for the patellar ligament
*medial malleolus- medial surface of distal end (medial surface of ankle joint)
Tibia lateral condyle
