The toothed margin is nearly straight, with the articular condyle at about the same level as the tooth row.
It presents medially a circular ‘articular surface of the head,’ directed anteroproximad and articulating with the lateral condyle of the tibia.
Radiographs of the right knee demonstrated a bony fragment in the medial condyle of the femur.
The lateral head arises from the lateral surface of the lateral condyle of the femur, proximal and posterior to the lateral epicondyle.
It extends to the posterior part of the medial surface of the lateral condyle of the femur.
Note that the sartorius muscle has become a thin band as it crosses over and behind the medial condyle of the femur.
The dentary was scaled so that the condyle articulated with the glenoid fossa and the lower caniniform occluded with the diastema between the upper first tooth and caniniform.
What you are feeling is the condyle of the lower jaw.
The pin was inserted on the medial condyle at a point halfway between the articular surface and the medial epicondyle and was aimed toward the tibial insertion.
Twelve distal femoral condyles, proximal tibial condyles , and patellae were harvested; all soft tissue was removed.
