Chapter 11 -- Global Meniscus Repair Systems Market Analysis 2013-2017 and Forecast 2018-2028, by Clinical Application Based on the clinical application, the meniscus repair systems market is segmented into radial tear, horizontal tear, flap tear, complex tear, bucket-handle tear, and oblique tear.
When managing the isolated anterior horn horizontal tear of the lateral meniscus and accompanied anterolateral parameniscal cyst under arthroscopy, the resection of the superior leaf is easy; however, the resection of the inferior leaf, which is more commonly found unstable [9, 10], is much more challenging [11].
The scan was reported as showing a horizontal tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus with superior articular surface contact, extending into the posterior root attachment (Figures 3 and 4).
In layman's terms his left kneecap had come loose and the way it had happened, a vertical rather than horizontal tear, made it almost impossible to fix.
Whereas when the fletching tear matches the direction the arrow needs to be moved on a vertical tear, it is the opposite on a horizontal tear. For example, if the tear shows the nock end to the right of point, move the arrow rest (point) farther to the left.
STUDY: DTI research; THE RIP: Opening a small plastic or foil bag with horizontal tear motion; THE PULL: One hand grasps a thick container while other yanks it open; THE PINCH: Getting to grips with medium-sized loosely packed bag; THE PINCH 2: Using exactly same technique to unseal smaller packet; THE TUG: You don't have try too hard with this one, it's only muesli; THE SLICE: Awkward this.

Simple X-ray of the knee showed no abnormalities and a discoid medial meniscus with peripheral and horizontal tear and the upper side of the meniscus folded in the intercondylar notch was found on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan with no other abnormalities associated (Figure 1).
FIGURE 3: MRI PD sagittal image shows horizontal tear of medial meniscus.
There were 5 (19%) bucket handle tears and 3 (11%) horizontal tears, which were identified on MRI and all of these tears were confirmed on arthroscopy.
Bucket handle tear of medial meniscus was the most common pattern followed by horizontal tears. Radial tear was the most common pattern found in lateral meniscus followed by complex tears.
