Successful repair strategies for lesions in the vascular zone of the meniscus like suturing have already been developed [17, 18].
Right: microscopic view; DMMB staining of the cell-free polyurethane scaffold (a) and surrounding meniscus tissue (b = avascular part; c = vascular zone) 6 weeks after implantation.
[2, 4-11] As per these studies, heat stress causes increased blood flow to skin leading to reflex vasodilatation in the cutaneous vascular bed and vasoconstriction in the hepato-splanchnic vascular zone. This vasoconstriction shifts the blood from hepato splanchnic vascular zone to cutaneous vascular zone [4] to overcome the effect of heat stress.
The second response is reflex vasodilatation in the cutaneous vascular bed and vasoconstriction in the hepato-splanchnic vascular zone due to shifting of blood from this zone to cutaneous vascular zone to overcome the effect of heat stress.
Was it a disruption of the capsular attachment to the peripheral vascular zone of the medial meniscus that bled and then settled?
Repair is definitely feasible when a traumatic vertical longitudinal tear is within the vascular zone. The repair vs.
It also causes a scrambled vascular zone at the graft union.
