We hypothesize that disruption of the fascicular attachments between the popliteus and lateral meniscus can result in gross instability of the meniscus producing locking of the knee. This study brings attention to the importance of the clinical examination, and the need for clinical correlation to magnetic resonance (MR) studies. We report on three patients referred with the history of mechanical locking episodes of their knee. Initial MR examinations were all read as normal before referral to… CONTINUE READING
