Meniscus tear case report

Medial Meniscus Tear of the Left Knee A 55-year-old female patient presented to us with complaints of left knee pain and a snapping/popping sensation. The patient reported injuring her left knee while playing with her grandson. She reported a subsequent swelling in the left knee which subsided after a few days Case presentation: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed radial tear of the lateral meniscus. During arthroscopy, it was found that there was a full-thickness radial tear of about 2 mm located in the edge. Partial meniscectomy was performed to treat radial meniscal tear located in the white area Unreported in the literature is a displaced meniscus tear in the acute postoperative period. We present the case of a displaced meniscus tear acutely after THA and discuss our management of this unique problem. Conclusions: Displaced meniscus tears after THA pose unique challenges and should be considered in patients with knee pain after THA Case Study - Meniscus Tear There was a 55 year old gentleman, a bit overweight, who squatted down to pick up something off the floor and immediately had pain in his left knee. His evaluation was consistent with a meniscus tear and MRI confirmed the diagnosis

Case Presentation Nonsurgical Resolution of a Bucket Handle Meniscal Tear: A Case Report Q2 Jessica Urzen, DO, Bradley D. Fullerton, MD, FAAPMR Abstract A bucket handle meniscal tear (BHMT) often causes intermittent locking of the affected knee as the displaced fragment flips into the intercondylar notch. Surgical correction is usually required The patient is a 60-year-old female with complaints of left knee pain for the past 5 years..The pain is moderate in intensity. She got a cortisone injection 6 months ago and has been improving since then till last month when the pain started again.. The patient describes the pain as stabbing and throbbing The pain is constant and does in sleep This is a case report of a patient with lateral meniscal tear with MRI evidence of double popliteus sign that was written in line with SCARE criteria of case reports [ 10 ]. 2. Presentation of the case This is a case report of 27-year-old gentlemen, who was previously healthy, non-smoker and with no positive family history of chronic illnesses report 2 cases of bilateral discoid medial meniscus. Patients concerns: Case1: a 23-year-old man presented with complaints of pain and occasional clicking of the right knee for 6 years, the left knee was asymptomatic. Case 2: a 51-year-old woman had a 1-month history of pain and a feeling of giving away in both knees. Diagnoses: Based on physical examination and magnetic resonance.

Case Discussion Bone bruise patterns in knee injuries will aid in the interpretation of knee MRI. The posterior thirds, also called the posterior horns, of the meniscus are important areas to review in ACL injuries, and include Wrisberg rip tears and RAMP lesions. 5 article feature images from this case Strengthening in Meniscus Tear Treatment: A Case Report.

Displaced Meniscus Tear in the Acute Postoperative Period

Meniscus Tear - Case Study Dr

A torn meniscus causes pain, swelling and stiffness. You also might feel a block to knee motion and have trouble extending your knee fully. Conservative treatment — such as rest, ice and medication — is sometimes enough to relieve the pain of a torn meniscus and give the injury time to heal on its own A meniscus tear results in pain in the front of the knee, either in the middle of the knee (from a medial meniscus tear, which is more common) or the side of the knee (from a lateral meniscus tear). Interestingly, as is often the case with a torn meniscus, a person can still walk and even continue to play their sport right after the injury During surgery, an unexpected abnormal glenoid appearance was encountered. A discoid meniscus-like tissue attached to the labrum covered the lower two-thirds of the glenoid. Case Report History and Preoperative Work Up. A 65-year-old man sustained a proximal humeral fracture in a previously healthy shoulder Case presentation A 5-year-old Japanese girl with a history of Turner's syndrome and Blount's disease complained of pain in her left knee. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a discoid lateral meniscus tear, and arthroscopic partial meniscectomy was performed, providing a good outcome

meniscus injury to improve physical function. More research is needed. The purpose of this case report is to document the effects of conservative physical therapy on functional outcomes in a patient with a degenerative meniscus tear and osteoarthritis. This review also explores the evidence for managing meniscal tears and when to consider eac CASE REPORT Open Access Meniscal tear as potential steering factor for inflammation may aggravate arthritis: two case reports Priya Kulkarni1, Soumya Koppikar1, Shantanu Deshpande2, Narendrakumar Wagh2 and Abhay Harsulkar1* Abstract Introduction: Meniscal tear is thought to play a crucial role in onset as well as progression of arthritis. However Massive discoid medial meniscus. A case report. Comba D, Quaglia F, Magliano G. Only eight cases of massive discoid meniscus have previously been published in the English literature. Our case had a tear and was diagnosed by arthroscopy. PMID: 3840947 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] Publication Types: Case Reports; MeSH Terms. Adult; Arthroscopy. report a case of bilateral medial and lateral discoid menisci. The patient did well postoperatively after both medial menisci were excised in two separate operations. Case report A 44-year-old female patient complained of pain on her right knee after fast walking for two months. On physi-cal examination, the range of motion was limited due t Background. Paediatric meniscal injuries are rare, usually occuring in conjunction with either a ligamentous or bony injury.1 2 Isolated meniscal injuries are very uncommon, with only small numbers being reported throughout the literature.3 The incidence of meniscal injuries in those younger than 9 years is thought to be 1 per 100 000 patients, and these often occur in conjunction with.

Lateral Meniscus Posterior Root Tear (LMPRT): A Case Repor

  1. ation. The patient was operated within 6 h from injury. During arthroscopy bucket-handle tears of both medial and lateral menisci were found
  2. He collected his MRI reports next day and revisited the surgeon. His reports mentioned - grade 3 tear of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), longitudinal tear at posterior horn of medial meniscus, grade 2 tear of posterior cruciate ligament (PCL). Therefore, the surgeon advised surgery to repair torn ACL and meniscus
  3. Injuries of the meniscus roots are increasingly recognized as a serious knee joint pathology. An avulsion fracture of the meniscus root is a rare variant of this injury pattern. In this article, a case of a traumatic simultaneous avulsion fracture of both the posterior medial and posterior lateral meniscus root associated with a tear of the anterior cruciate ligament is presented. Both.

Certain symptoms increase the full value of your meniscus tear case. As frequency of these symptoms increases, so does the full value of the claim. The following symptoms may raise the full value of a case for settlement purposes: Knee gets locked up or stuck. Hard time straightening and bending the leg. Swelling The latest follow-up at 18 months indicated satisfactory results. CONCLUSION: We report a rare case of ipsilateral medial and lateral discoid meniscus with medial meniscus tear. The medial discoid meniscus with tear was treated with partial meniscectomy, whereas the lateral discoid meniscus without tear was only followed up. PMCID: PMC5288636

We report two cases of the spontaneous recurrent hemarthrosis of the knee. In these cases lateral meniscus was severely torn and a small tubular soft tissue with pulsation was identified on the synovium in the posterolateral corner during arthroscopic surgery of the knee joint. Gentle grasping of this tissue by forceps led to pulsating bleeding, which stopped by electrocoagulation If the tear is in the avascular area, he can try to play and, worst case, do a partial meniscectomy if symptomatic. Removing torn meniscus, a minimally invasive procedure, requires two or three small punctures. The patient might need crutches for a few days, but the non-athlete can return to work in a couple days

The ganglion cyst on the ACL can be caused by injury of the anterior horn of the meniscus and on the premise of guarantee the stability of the knee joint, A surgery limited on the meniscus can solve the problem in the early time. Consent Written informed consent was obtained from the patient for publication of this case report and any. A deteriorated meniscus may suddenly tear, however; in this case, it may be reasonable to consider surgical intervention. Our Approach to Meniscus Tears. At UCSF, we have world-class experts with advanced training in knee care and surgical techniques for the meniscus, as well as researchers actively working to improve therapeutic techniques An acute meniscus tear, which occurs, for example, as a result of a sports injury, manifests itself in suddenly occurring, severe pain. Chronic cartilage wear, which is associated with a meniscus tear, shows itself as a gradual worsening of the pain. As a general rule, the pain usually occurs particularly during exercise

Proximal tibiofibular dislocation (PTFD) is a rare injury. In this article, we report a case of a PTFD, complicated with an intraarticular injury, a bucket-handle tear of the lateral meniscus. A 37-year-old male patient presented to the emergency department with pain and swelling on the lateral side of his right knee due to lateral trauma to. Meniscal tears have been reported in association with meniscal cysts in 50‐100% of cases. 2-4,9,10 The presence of a meniscal tear on MRI is defined as distinct high signal extending to an articular surface of the meniscus. 3 MRI often shows a simple horizontal cleavage tear or a complex meniscal tear with a horizontal component that. Conversely, younger people do often report a specific incident where they hurt their knee as the force required to tear a young strong meniscus is much higher. In the older knee, meniscal tears are now being considered as part of osteoarthritis instead of a separate injury needing specific treatment

Geeslin AG, Civitarese D, Turnbull TL, et al. Influenceof lateral meniscal posterior root avulsions and themeniscofemoral ligaments on tibiofemoral. A medial meniscus tear is more common than a lateral meniscus tear, because it is firmly attached to the deep medial collateral ligament and the joint capsule. In addition, the medial meniscus absorbs up to 50% of the shock of the medial compartment, making the medial meniscus susceptible to injury radial tear: perpendicular to both the tibial plateau and the long axis of the meniscus. root tear: typically radial-type tear located at the meniscal root. complex tear: a combination of all or some horizontal, vertical, and radial-type tears. displaced tear: tear involving a component that is displaced, either still attached to the parent. Ross Hauser, MD., Danielle R. Steilen-Matias, MMS, PA-C Stem Cell therapy for knee meniscus tears and post-meniscectomy. This article will explore new research that paints a fascinating picture of natural meniscus healing, surgical and non-surgical meniscus repair, and when Stem Cell Therapy (Bone Marrow Aspirate Concentrate) may or may not work for your meniscus tear

Case Study: Management of Medial Meniscal Tear and

In contrast, patients with an acute ACL tear have been reported to have meniscus lesions 65% of the time, with 50% of the lesions being medial and 50% lateral. 23 In chronic ACL injuries, meniscus tears are found in as many as 98% of patients 3,23; the reported 3:1 ratio of medial to lateral tears is most likely due to the increased stress on. As one ages, the meniscus can become more brittle and is much easier to tear. An arthroscopic meniscectomy is performed in over 200,000 - 300,000 patients each year in the United States. The current standard used to assess for the presence of meniscal tears is to palpate along the joint line while applying a varus or valgus stress to the knee The report said 'There is heterogeneous signal in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus extending towards the body with what appears to be an oblique horizontal longitudinal tear. The heterogeneous signal may represent healing material and previous tear Bucket handle meniscus tears are more common in younger athletes. They can occur in older adult athletes too, but most bucket handle meniscus tears occur in people under 35 years of age. A bucket handle tear is unique because the entire meniscus tears, flips over and becomes stuck in the middle of the knee joint posterior root medial meniscus (prMM) tears have shown to be biomechanically equivalent to complete meniscectomy. Drawbacks from prMM tears repair are unsatisfactory healing rates. In this case report, we outlined a prMM reconstruction with gracilis graft healing outcome in chronic prMM tear case, based o

  1. Case Report Abstract Background: Open-wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO) is an established surgical treatment for medial osteoarthritis of the knee. There is a tendency in recent years that the optimal postoperative alignment is less than that of previous reports and defined as %MA (Mechanical Axis) 50-60%
  2. A torn meniscus is a tear in the cartilage of the knee. The meniscus functions to improve the fit between the femur and the tibia, to absorb shock and distribute load in the knee, and to help move lubricating fluid around the knee. The meniscus can tear from either trauma or injury or from degeneration. The knee is made up of the femur (thigh.
  3. In addition, there have been occasional case reports that report that some radial tears may heal over time, although this is not expected for the vast majority of tears. What it does indicate is that the lateral meniscus does have some ability to heal, so pushing the limits for a repair, especially in a young patient, would be indicated

Discussion: This case report illustrates the effectiveness of a conservative approach to a potential ACL and meniscal tear in an adult patient in the outpatient setting. The results in this case report are consistent with similar studies regarding conservative treatment of an ACL tear Ring-shaped lateral meniscus is a rare clinical entity that is usually asymptomatic. Moreover, diagnosis is always based on arthroscopic exploration of lateral meniscus. MRI has not been proven useful so far because the inner portion of the ring-shaped lateral meniscus is usually misinterpreted as a bucket-handle tear. The authors report a case of a 16-year-old girl with ring-shaped lateral. This case report describes a 43‐year‐old man with magnetic resonance imaging-confirmed medial BHMT who received 3 treatments of platelet‐rich plasma injections in and around the meniscus within 7 months after the diagnosis of the tear. The patient reported resolution of pain with walking 8 months after the injury The majority of missed tears were found in the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus, a finding which has also been seen in other similar studies. 25,33 In a pediatric population, MRI had a sensitivity of 59% and specificity of 91% in characterizing meniscal tears compared to what was identified at arthroscopy. 24 Given the high rate of.

The severity of the medial meniscus extrusion may also affect healing after repair, and several authors report that the medial meniscus extrusion is not completely reduced by medial meniscus posterior root tear repair . However, in the case of the patient with medial meniscus posterior root tear, the severity of the medial meniscus extrusion. There are several reports on anatomical differences of the meniscus. However, there are only a few reports on abnormalities in both menisci and anatomical differences in anterior cruciate ligament insertions. This is a case report of a 36-year-old Hispanic man presenting symptoms, including knee pain, locking, and effusion, with an anatomical abnormality of the menisci corresponding to the. In the case where jumper's knee and patellofemoral pain syndrome have been ruled out but anterior knee pain persists, a meniscus tear may be suspected. Lateral meniscus surgery: do you need it?

  5. Posterior Horn of the Medial Meniscus Injury FAQ. The medial meniscus is the cushion that is located on the inside part of the knee. It is generally divided into 3 separate portions, the anterior horn, the mid-body and the posterior horn. The posterior horn is the thickest and most important for overall function of the knee
  6. Lateral meniscus tears can occur in the anterior horn, body, posterior horn, or root of the meniscus. The lateral meniscus root (LMR) is approximately two times more mobile than the medial meniscus root (MMR), which has led to the hypothesis that the lateral meniscus is less involved with knee stabilization and consequently encounters less stress than that encountered by the medial meniscus

The team said he is considered day to day for future play and will be treated with physical therapy, not surgery. Embiid had season-ending surgery to repair a meniscus tear in his left knee during the 2016-17 campaign Frequently Asked Questions about Meniscus Tears Can a meniscus tear heal on its own, without surgery? Yes. In fact, most minor and medium strength meniscus tears heal on their own (with the help of RICE of course). What is the recovery time for a meniscus tear? It depends on the severity of the tear. Minor tears can repair themselves in a. Tears of the meniscus can be the result of wear and tear on the joint or can occur when there's an injury, such as some type of sports trauma. The meniscus has a red zone — the outer third of the meniscus — with a good blood supply and a white zone — the rest of the meniscus — with no blood supply
