The menisci: Anatomy, healing response, and biomechanics
© Springer-Verlag France, Paris, 2012. All rights are reserved. Injury to the meniscus from both sports injuries and daily living activities is common. As a result, arthroscopic treatment of meniscal lesions has become one of the most common orthopaedic surgical procedures, with arthroscopic partial meniscectomy as one of the top 10 orthopaedic surgical procedures performed in the United States (1). Occurring isolated or associated with ligamentous injuries, meniscal tears can result in abnormal joint function and mechanics, leading to subsequent degeneration of the joint.
