The semimembranosus-tibial collateral ligament bursa, also known more simply as the semimembranosus bursa, is located at the posteromedial aspect of the knee at the medial aspect of the semimembranosus tendon. When filled with fluid, the semimembranosus-tibial collateral bursa has an unmistakable "inverted-U" shape, which allows its easy identification.
