Fall on the Knee

A 35 year old fall onto knee, now unable to bear weight, unable to straight-leg-raise. Can you delineate the suprapatellar pouch and what is it filled with? Also where is the origin of injury and how is it treated? The patient is not on any anticoagulated. Not on any other medication. What is your opinion?
