Interesting Ultrasound Scan

We’ve added another, unusual scan, just for your interest.
A young lady slipped on a wet floor and fell onto broken glass- she cut the front of her knee badly, but was stitched up by a local doctor, and seemed to make a good recovery. Back in the UK several months later, the kneecap tendon was still lumpy and sore and came to see David. The image below shows the damage in then left hand frame, which had gone quite deep- the normal patella tendon is shown in the right hand frame.
Again we recommended further investigation. However, she made a very good functional recovery without any surgical intervention.
