Role of the mechanical axis of lower limb and body weight in the horizontal tear and root ligament tear of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus.
In our study, the most common site of tear was the posterior horn. The posterior horn of medial meniscus was also reported as the commonest site of tear by Stoller et al [11] in their study.
The term "meniscal root tear" is used to name the insertion of the posterior horn (and the root ligaments) of either the medial or lateral meniscus on the tibial plateau [7, 26] suggesting an avulsion of the meniscus insertion at the tibia plateau.
The distances between anterior and posterior horns were determined using the internal face of Vernier Calliper which was placed between the apex of the anterior horn and the apex of the posterior horn (Figure 2).
In lateral knee joint, considerable backward translation occurred, accompanied femur lifting off the lateral tibia and fall on the posterior horn of meniscus, the femur being subluxation.
In the example shown (Figures 1 and 2), the entire medial meniscus is noted to be diminutive, with the posterior horn measuring 7 mm to 8 mm.
Four runners had preexisting grade 1 meniscal lesions, involving the posterior horn of the medial meniscus in 2 runners and the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus in the other 2.
Kissing contusions identify cartilage involvement in ACL tears, especially if the image shows that the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus is no longer covered by the knee.
An MRI showed "myxoid changes in the posterior horn of the medial meniscus." I am seeing a sports medicine podiatrist who prescribed orthotics and specific running shoes.
Chapter 4 is on a feature of the brain historically labelled the hippocampus minor (actually a ridge in the floor of the posterior horn of the lateral ventricle) which was greatly debated in Darwin's time because of its supposed relevance to understanding brain evolution and continuity, but which now has been almost completely forgotten.
