Material properties and structure-function relationships in the menisci
. Clin Orthop Relat Res.
Secondary to the increase in the use of CT and MRI in research, there has been a surge in studies on the anatomy of and variations in the menisci
in adults (9).
Imaging of menisci
and ligaments were performed in all three standard planes (sagittal, coronal and axial).
Traumatic meniscal lesion is most commonly a break at one of the two menisci
(medial and lateral), which can be complete rupture or not, with:
Despite these findings, not all discoid lateral menisci
will rupture or present symptoms.
Volpi et al., "Why menisci
show higher healing rate when repaired during ACL reconstruction?
An awkward twist when getting up from a chair may be enough to cause a tear, if the menisci
have weakened with age.
Out of 496 patients with ACL rupture, 309 (62.3%) had no rupture of menisci
, while the remaining 187 (37.7%) were diagnosed with meniscal lesions.
In summary, the menisci
are important cartilage structures within the knee that reduce stress and provide some stability.
Movement involves flexion and extension, with a small degree of rotation, and the joint is considered to be 'mobile' due to movement of the menisci
Objective: To determine the diagnostic accuracy of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in injuries related to anterior cruciate ligament and menisci
and compare its effectiveness with that of arthroscopy.
take over the task of reducing shock in case of overloading on the knee joint during weight bearing or sports performance .
