Misinterpretation of normal anatomy like meniscofemoral ligaments, etc.
There are different classifications for discoid meniscus being Watanabe, the most accepted, in which discoid meniscus is classified into three different types according to the arthroscopic aspect: type I or complete, type II or incomplete, and type III or Wrisberg-ligament type in which the posterior meniscofemoral attachment is absent resulting in an unstable meniscus with hypermobility [5].

Close to its posterior attachment it gives off a small band of fibres (fasciculus), hnown as the posterior meniscofemoral ligament, or the ligament of Wrisberg, passing upward and medially to insert into the medial condyle of the femur, immediately behind the attachment of the posterior cruciate ligament.
16-18) Attaching in the general proximity is the posterior horn, which in 84% of people will divide into either anterior or posterior meniscofemoral ligaments (Humphrey or Wrisburg).
23) The only attachment of the posterior horn is the Wrisberg meniscofemoral ligament, and the posterior horn may translate or rotate due to hypermobility.
4) The meniscofemoral ligaments act as secondary stabilizers to posterior translation of the tibia, with the ligament of Humphrey located anterior to the PCL, and the ligament of Wrisberg located posterior to the PCL.
The meniscofemoral ligaments: secondary restraints to the posterior drawer.
The meniscofemoral ligaments of Humphrey and Wrisburg are seen as low signal intensity dots anterior and posterior to the PCL and should not be mistaken for displaced meniscal fragments or an intact PCL in presence of tear.
The meniscofemoral ligaments are intimately associated with the PCL as they pass from the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus to the medial femoral condyle.
It may be attributed to the misinterpretation of normal meniscofemoral ligament as meniscal tear or operator/procedure dependant drawback of arthroscopy.
