Medial meniscus extrusion on knee MRI: is extent associated with severity of degeneration or type of tear?
OBJECTIVE The meniscus is considered "extruded" when it extends beyond the tibial margin. We hypothesize that severe degeneration, large radial tears, complex tears, and tears involving the meniscalExpand
