Medial femoropatellar ligament - Ligamentum femoropatellare mediale


The medial femoropatellar ligament is a delicate band of loose fibres, partially blended with the overlying medial retinaculum. It extends from the medial side of the patella (or cartilaginous process in cattle and horses) to the condyle of femur (or medial sesamoid bone of gastrocnemius in carnivores).
