Posteromedial knee friction syndrome

Medial knee pain and edema between the femoral condyle, sartorius and gracilis

Dynamic imaging of the posteromedial corner (PMC) would be useful to identify position changes in the sartorius and gracilis during knee flexion and abnormal motion in the PMC and around the posteromedial femoral condyle (PMFC). These changes can lead to posteromedial knee friction syndrome. Evidence of focal soft tissue edema between the PMFC, sartorius and/or gracilis should raise the suspicion of a friction syndrome.
