Ffyon Davies's insight:

You can log in with facebook, useful 3D anatomy tool. If you click on the structures e.g. posterior cruciate ligament, it will give you clinical conditions, and a description of the structure.

Animation of Initiation of Atherosclerosis - Macrophage Activation 2

Animation of Initiation of Atherosclerosis - Macrophage Activation 2 | Group 26 | Scoop.it
This animation shows a simplified version of the macrophage's role in the initiation of atherosclerosis.



In an atherosclerotic-prone blood vessel, macrophages invade the subendothelial space. Oxidised Low-Density Lipoproteins (oxLDL) present within the vessel wall will bind to scavenger receptors on the macrophage's surface, such as CD36. This will activate the macrophage, and it will phagocytose the oxLDL. As this process continues, the macrophage increases in size and forms a Foam Cell, which is too large to pass between the endothelial cells back into the lumen. Therefore, the foam cells remain in the subendothelial space and are the main cells present within an atherosclerotic plaque.

Found this on another groups page. Might be worth taking a look at. The knee injuries are listed at the bottom of the page.

Coronary artery stents in Atherosclerosis

Coronary artery stents in Atherosclerosis | Group 26 | Scoop.it
Atherosclerosis is the condition in which an artery wall thickens as the result of a build-up of fatty materials such as cholesterol.It most commonly becomes seriously symptomatic when interfering with the coronary circulation supplying the heart or cerebral circulation supplying the brain, and is considered the most important underlying cause of strokes, heart attacks, and most cardiovascular diseases, in general.
A stent is a man-made 'tube' inserted into a natural passage/conduit in the body to prevent, or counteract, a disease-induced, localized flow constriction. Stents are used to counter narrowing of arteries due to plaque deposition and hardening.
Ffyon Davies's insight:

Video showing how a coronary stent is inserted. Funky music too.

Lower Limb - YouTube

By Robert Acland

A helpful suggestion.
Many things led up to my decision to make the Video Atlas, but the immediate cause was a conversation that happened in the fall of 1993. I had just given a clinical correlation lecture to our medical students about the importance of anatomy to me in my career as a surgeon.

One student, Suzanne l'Ecuyer, said, "You can't imagine how helpful it would be if you could make videos as beautiful as the slides you just showed us." Overhearing her, one of our senior anatomists said "Bob, you've been talking about doing that for years, it's time you did it." Within two weeks I had committed myself to making a major series of anatomical videos for students.

The knee is covered at about 45 mins in - Acland anatomy

Anne Marie Cunningham's curator insight, January 15, 2014 9:04 PM

Robert Acland has very kindly made this video atlas freely available with the support of several funders, Here you can view the entire video of the lower limb. The knee starts at about 46 mins in and is about 30 minutes in total, so this is more detailed than many of the other online videos you willc ome across. 

The above quote is taken from the Acland Atlas website. here is the section on the knee http://aclandanatomy.com/browse/102/4010003 ;
