KNEE INJURIES which ahow nothing under the X-ray frequently occur and are regarded by the physician as a complicated puzzle. A. vague diagnosis of -water on the knee is made. This diajrnosis satisfies the patient better than it does the physician. Perhaps that is why it is made so often. A pair of crutches and an elastic knee cap aro prescribed treatment, and recovery is itlt in the hands of time. The acute symptoms subside, and persistent disability, which the subject accepts as a "trick knee," is too often the result. The knee is a very complicated joint and an injury may produce Dr. Clendening will answer questions of general interest only, »nd then only through his column. to find it in bishops as it is in housemaids. Baker's Cjsl Another bursa, in the back of the knee, is known when inflamed as Baker's cyst. It is found in. occupations where a constant backward re- curvation of the knee is maintained. These inflammations of the bur- sae around the knee subside under ordinary treatment by heat, rest, splinting, diathermy and light treatment with infra-red lamp. Hemorrhage into the knee joint occurs very frequently in that rare disease, hemophilia. In fact, a hemophiliac is -usually known more by the fact that he has a stiff knee than by bleeding: in any other part of the body. any one or a combination of a number of injuries. The ligaments of the knee on the side, inside and outside may be strained. There are two ligaments inside the knee joint which cross each other and these may be strained or ruptured by injury. Common Disorder Commonest of all is perhaps the dislocation of ono of the moon- shaped cartilages in the knee joint. These cartilages are thin blades of tissue which are very loosely connected with the bone and may become pulled off, gret into the knee joint and float around. They frequently cause what is known as "locked knee." Football players often suffer this injury. In most cases, if left alone, the inflammation subsides and, except for an occasional locking, which is what is called a "trick knee," they give no trouble. They can be removed easily by a simple surg-ical operation, if they give enough trouble to be serious. Inflammation of thebursac around the knee is very common- As there are 14 bursae in the rcjyion of the knee, it is easy to see that they present a complicated problem. The cause is the inflammation of the bursa on top of the knee cap, which is commonly called "housemaid's knee." Nowadays, when very few housemaids get down on their knees to scrub floors, it is qnito as common QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS G. V.: "What is the trouble when you don't have the least de- bire or *ecl the least necessity of having a bowel movement?" Answer: The treatment of chronic constipation is a complicated one, and is largely" psychic. People who worry about it wor-y too much, and by so doing simply make the condition worse. In the case here described insensitiveness of the lower rectum appears to be a dominant cause. Perhaps a suppository used first thing on arising would be a good thing. Most patients with constipation simply do not eat enough, especially of fruit and vegetables. W. D.: "Will you please give me a list of acid -forming foods?" Answer-- The only acid-forming foods arc the fate, J. C.: "Will peanut butter be helpful in eliminating bile by way of the intestines? Also would mineral oil be helpful?" Answer: Any fat will help to eliminate bile. Mineral oil does not act in this way. EDITOR'S NOTE: Seven pamphlets br Or.
