The purpose of this study is to define the clinical features and characteristics of radial tears in the root of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus and to report the outcome of arthroscopic treatment. Arthroscopic meniscus surgery was performed on 7,148 knees. Of those, 722 (10.1%) were radial tear in the root of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus. We reviewed the medical records from a random sample of 67 subjects studied (mean age 55.8 years, range 38–72, mean follow-up period 56… CONTINUE READING
