Arthroscopic Complete Posterior Capsulotomy for Knee Flexion Contracture

2018 Arthroscopy

Knee flexion contracture is a clinically important complication that can be observed after trauma, after knee surgery, or as a result of osteoarthritis. When it is left untreated, knee shearing forces increase not only in the affected joint but also in the contralateral knee, leading to mechanical overload […]

An Evidence-Based Approach to the Diagnosis and Treatment of Meniscal Root Tears

The purpose of this review was to summarize recent advances in the diagnosis and treatment of meniscus root tears. Over the past decade, meniscal root tears have become increasingly recognized as a significant source of pain and disability. Meniscal root tears are often caused by chronic degenerative changes […]

Early Osteoarthritis After Untreated Anterior Meniscal Root Tears

2017 OJSM

Menisci are crescent-shaped, fibrocartilaginous wedges that play an important role in complex knee mechanics and function. The menisci are primarily responsible for distributing loads through the tibiofemoral joint, joint stabilization, and congruency. The circumferential collagen fibers in the meniscus body continue into the anterior and posterior root insertional […]
