Question:

Which of the following plicae of the knee is the most commonly observed during arthroscopy?
1. Infrapatellar plica
2. Suprapatellar plica
3. Lateral patellar plica
4. Mediopatellar plica
5. They all have equal incidences





Answer:

The correct answer for the question "Which of the following plicae of the knee is the most commonly observed during arthroscopy?" is:

1. Infrapatellar plica



Explanation
[Arthroscopically, the infrapatellar plica is by far the most commonly observed plica of the knee (incidence of 65% - 85.5%), followed by the suprapatellar (55%) and mediopatellar plica (24.5%)]

Abstract
We report a case of posterior hoffitis in a middle-aged woman with no prior history of significant major trauma. Her symptoms of anterior knee pain and limited extension failed conservative measures. Preoperative magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a significantly thickened infrapatellar plica tethering Hoffa`s fat pad in the anterior interval of the knee. Arthroscopic resection of the infrapatellar plica resulted in complete resolution of symptoms within six months following the surgery.
