This investigation attempted to determine the radiographic position of human meniscal horn bony insertion sites. This information would prove vital for anatomically correct osseous tunnel placement necessary for the restoration of a functional meniscus after reconstructive surgery. The native bony insertion sites of the medial and lateral meniscus in 13 fresh-frozen human cadaver knees were radiographically examined. After insertion site outline with 22-gauge fine wire, anteroposterior and… CONTINUE READING
