The articular surface is gently convex and made up of seven facets, six of which are divided into medial and lateral parts by a central ridge. The lateral facets are larger than the medial ones. The narrow medial surface is further subdivided by two vertical strips. The most medial facet is called the odd facet as it is in contact with the femoral condyle only in flexion (Goodfellow et… CONTINUE READING
