Description

The upper extremityor tibia is large, and expanded into two eminences, the medial and lateral condyles.

The medial condyle presents posteriorly a deep transverse groove, for the insertion of the tendon of the Semimembranosus. Its medial surface is convex, rough, and prominent; it gives attachment to the tibial collateral ligament.
