Comminuted Fracture of the Patella
The patella is a small bone located at the front of the knee that protects the knee and connects the front thigh muscles to the tibia (upper part of the leg). Comminuted fractures of the patella are commonly called by a direct blow, such as from a motor vehicle accident or a fall. Common symptoms include pain and swelling in the front of the knee, bruising, and an inability to straighten the knee or walk.
