Osgood-Schlatter disease

This is a painful condition in which there is injury to the tibial tuberosity where it joins with the patellar tendon. It is commonly found in adolescents who participate in a lot of sporting activities during their growth spurt. The patellar tendon causes damage to the tibial tuberosity due to a combination of increased quadriceps muscle strength, immaturity of the bone and repeated strain. Inflammation and increased bone growth around the tuberosity sometimes creates a palpable bony nodule just below the patellar tendon that may be painful.

Osteochondroma

 Osteochondromas are benign tumours of bone and cartilage. They frequently grow outwards from bone and can be palpated. They most commonly occur on the knee, proximal femur or the humerus. Although not always symptomatic they can impinge nerves and vessels. Any osteochondroma that continues to grow after skeletal maturity should be removed due to an increased risk of malignancy.

Arthroscopy for degenerate meniscal tears of the knee

The NHS performs around 150 000 arthroscopic knee operations a year, with more than half involving resection of the meniscus. Therefore, close scrutiny of this intervention in the United Kingdom is entirely appropriate, particularly in the context of the ongoing drive towards providing evidence based and value based care.
