Lateral epicondyle of the femur
|Lateral epicondyle of the femur|
|Latin||Epicondylus lateralis femoris|
|Anatomical terms of bone|
The lateral epicondyle of the femur, smaller and less prominent than the medial epicondyle, gives attachment to the fibular collateral ligament of the knee-joint. Directly below it is a small depression from which a smooth well-marked groove curves obliquely upward and backward to the posterior extremity of the condyle.
