Arthroscopic surgery meniscus tear

The arthroscopic surgery of meniscus tear is one way for treating meniscus,it including arthroscopic surgery meniscus partial nephrectomy、meniscus angioplasty and meniscus suture. Arthroscopic surgery meniscus partial nephrectomy is the most widely choose in these,even though it keeps partial meniscus, which also can cause abnormal pressure and lead to the remaining meniscus cartilage degeneration,so preserving the more meniscus more better, by contrast,the best way for arthroscopic surgery is meniscus suture.

Meniscus tear suture usually has three basic solution: Outside introversion suture、inside extroversion suture and the all within suture. Arthroscopic surgery meniscus tear suture is the best according the long-term outcome affirmative of treatment,and it the one that minimum of human body damage, most conforms to the body’s normal biomechanics method,however, as it only fit for 1/3 meniscus tear(1/3  meniscus supply blood),so the indications is very narrow for arthroscopic surgery meniscus tear suture.It needs deep think over especially for a arthroscopic surgery.

The recovery after arthroscopic surgery

It needs long terms of recovery after arthroscopic surgery of meniscus tear suture, to ensure the tear parts can heal completely,usually require avoid freeweight for more than six weeks,during this time, keep eating foods that heath for cartilage regularly,and accept guidance from rehabilitation physician,prevention the joint sticky and muscle contraction,get a better recovery after arthroscopic surgery of meniscus tear suture solution.

Meniscus tear mri and images

Meniscus tear mri

Meniscus tear is one of the main reasons of knee joint ache, normally the X-ray and CT scanning can not display meniscus conditions. By the reason of mri has high organization resolution ratio, and mri can multiaspect imagery,its diagnostic accuracy rate is 80% – 100%,so mri becoming the best check method for meniscus tear, here are stoller grading for tore meniscus on mri result.

Grade one: Performance of amorphous or spherical high signal shadow. But this is not reach the meniscal articular surface edge,so the type of damage under the arthroscope appears normal.

meniscus tear mri grade one

Grade two: Performance of linear high signal on the image.In other words,it means serious degeneration,and it is the continue of grade one, which not reach the meniscus articular surface but can reach margin of articular rim,however, it doesn’t mean grade two damage will progress to grade three.

Grade three:It shows linear or diffuse high signal and extended to the joint surface,this is named meniscus tear.As there is various and complex of meniscus tear,so judging correctly meniscus tear parts, shape, type is good for the formulation of clinical operation program.According the mri signal,meniscus tear is mainly classified six types.

meniscus tear mri grade three

meniscus tear mri grade three

1,meniscus level tear: high signal shadow that is parallels with tibial on mri result, this type tear relatively rare.

2,meniscus vertical tear: high signal shadow that is verticals with tibial on mri result.

3,meniscus diagonal tear: high signal shadow that has certain angles with tibial on mri result, strip high signal on the shadow achieves articular surfaces or inferior margin,sometimes it is not easily distinguish with longitudinal shape meniscus tear, this is the most common type injury.

The ask:

I had my meniscus injury when playing volleyball one month ago, after MRI,the result is posterior horn medial meniscus tear in my left leg, and the symptom is there has sounds in my left knee when bend leg, I am now looking for the treatment tips, thanks very much.

Posterior horn medial meniscus tear patient

Posterior horn medial meniscus tear treatment

The best answer:

According your MRI result, this is better have a timely treatment after confirmed, for posterior horn medial meniscus tear, mainly used to adopt conservative treatment, such as bend the knee then straight it as long as possible, this way can solve “locking knee” symptom. Or fix the leg with elastic bandages and plaster cast, you can heal the meniscus tear after 7 weeks, but this is only fit for less than 1/3 meniscus tear, for conservative treatment, you may also consider a meniscus tear surgery. But for the major meniscus tear,you should consider traditional chinese medicine treatment,I have remedy from the tear in just a course of treatment.

Here are some small tips for you in daily life.

A: Attention to the protection of the movement, especially when jumping and running, be carefully about the rotation of knee when under violence force.

B:When the knee injury occurs, have a treatment as soon as possible, and put the accurate diagnosis in the first place, for “locking knee” symptom, it is necessary for a effective treatment.

C:Attention to the safety in our normal life, looking out for wet road、traffic accidents, and so on.

D:Attention to the prevention of knee joint disease in order to avoid the occurrence of knee joint proliferative,which have a negative effect on the meniscus.

E:The obese patients should have a effective exercise to lose weight, so as to relief the stress for meniscus.

What is a torn meniscus

What is a torn meniscus

Meniscus tear is one of the common sports injuries, it often due to from powerful force on one leg, or caused by the incompatibility of motion, such as kick empty、feet kick feet when playing football, got tripped when running, and other sprained knee. which lead to the meniscus stuck between the femur and tibia, with the powerful force from outside, causing the meniscus tear. It is more prone to meniscus tear if along with other conditions, for example, long-term of squatting labor, there who gets discoid meniscus, and having ligament injury, and so on. Because of aging of meniscus degeneration, the elderly more easily lead to meniscus tear,besides,these torn meniscus cause can even without the apparent trauma.

The torn meniscus

Our knee meniscus is between the femur and the tibia plateau, inside the knee joint, consisted of two forms of lateral cartilage fiber. The meniscus tear may cause when the knee violently stretched, bent, twisted, transfer and other actions. There is feel tearing and sounds in the knee joint when meniscus tears, partial pain on the knee, Swelling and the knee can not extensor fully, the knee has sound when moving. Even some may suffer from symptoms of knee locking, this symptom is bend and unbend are limited when the knee joint start moving, accompanied with heavily pain,this is one of meniscus tear symptoms,besides there is “crack” sounds when bend and unbend the knee joint.

Meniscus tear symptoms help

The question about meniscus tear symptoms:

Eight days ago, I fell down from a chair, and hurt my knee badly, so I worried about it maybe meniscus tear, the symptoms as follows.

1, the inner side of my right knee is bruising, and slightly concave, there is feel pain and numbness when press down,besides,the inside of knee feeling internal friction of sand and full of liquid.

2, I can walk and running as normal, but the right knee feeling pain, swelling and sour when I keep still.

3, There is no sounds when I bend or unbend my knee.

According the above symptoms, I extremely worried about that it is meniscus tear, so I ask about it from the kind hearted, has my meniscus tear or not ?Thanks ahead.

meniscus tear symptoms

meniscus tear symptom

The best answer about meniscus tear symptoms:

1, from there is no sounds when you bend or unbend your knee, it is no much problem with your meniscus, because there is “crack” sound when meniscus tear, so do not worry about your meniscus.

2,as you mentioned, the inner side of your right knee is bruising, and slightly concave, there is feel pain and numbness when you press down. It is most likely injury your ligaments, I suggest you go to hospital for a magnetic resonance imaging(MRI) as soon as possible, so as to confirm the extent of injury, because the injured ligaments can easily lead to your knee joint instability,non-normal friction of articular cartilage, and may eventually develop into a traumatic arthritis, after all, traumatic arthritis is difficult to treatment. your feeling internal friction of sand root in the friction of the non-normal articular cartilage, full of liquid of your knee is because of the knee effusion.

3, I suggest you convalesce in one month, do not engage in strenuous exercise, and take good care of your meniscus and knee.

4, you can treatment with traditional Chinese medicine, topical plus oral administration, all have good effect on your injury, getting hot compress every night, massage your knee regularly so as to accelerating the blood circulation, this also benefit for the knee and meniscus. These above all good for your healthy.

The last washing you have a speedy recovery.

meniscus tear symptoms as follows:

1、Swelling of the knee joint.
2、Moderate pain,especially pain heavily when swelling.
3、Have discordance on range of motion,the symptom is unable bend or straight the leg completely.
4、Weakness of the knee joint,the symptom is difficult in straighting out and lifting the knee.
5、There is “poping” sound when get injury,and there is “click” sound when unbend and bend the knee joint,which is the most common meniscus tear symptom.

functions of meniscus

What is meniscus and the function

Meniscus is one of the most important and mysterious part of human’s knees, it has its own special function,as we all known, our knees support the weight of the body, and the meniscus relief the stress, so as to avoid knee got injury, in other words, the functions of meniscus is spread load force of the knee joint, promote nutrient absorption sections arounding the meniscus, and stabilize the knee joint. Because of the important role in stability knee joint,depending on its special meniscus functions, it guarantees weight-bearing for many years without knee injury.

meniscus functions detection

meniscus special functions detection

Meniscus is two fibrous cartilage shaped like crescent in the knee joint, locating in the medial and lateral of the tibial articular surface,it thick outside and thin inside, cross-section is triangular shape, the above is slightly concave, in this way to coincide with the femoral condyle,the below is flat, meet with the tibial plateau. In such a structure exactly right formation a deep recess between the femoral condyle and tibial plateau,in this excellent function,meniscus  increasing the stability of ball shaped femoral condyle and the tibial plateau, the front and end of meniscus attached at middle tibial terrace, rather than articular surface, in between front and rear of condyle,these two position also be called as anterior horn meniscus and posterior horn meniscus.

meniscus function

meniscus function and meniscus tear

The functions of meniscus

Between the femoral condyle and tibial plateau, the meniscus like a buffer, protection the both side of articular surface, absorb the shock conveying to downward, especially this role is more apparent when the concussion convey buckling or unbend. our knee suffer much more stress apart from body weight when jumping down from high place, but why the cartilage between femoral condyle and tibial plateau keeping in good condition, this is because existence of meniscus,rely on its  it  flexibility function,meniscus spreads the force to bear at the knee in same time, not confined to a point of femoral condyle and tibial plateau. In addition, meniscus can prevent the shifting of the femur, that is because wedge-shaped meniscus can make up for the disproportionate between femoral condyle and tibial plateau, filling the around dead space of round femoral condyle and tibial plateau, thus increasing the stability of the knee, and can prevent joint capsule and synovial organization into the articular surface. Meniscus can also prevent the femoral condyle forwarding slip on the tibial plateau, regulating the pressure inside the knee. The distribution of lubricating fluid on the meniscus, helps lubricate the knee joints and reduce friction. Meniscus itself has very good flexibility, it still maintain flexibility when the compression from 5mm to 2.5mm,together with its arched shape make sure articular cavity edge better support synovial sac. Meniscus can also support the rotation movement of knee, assist the lateral ligamentous control the joint lateral movements and help the joint rotation movement.

So we learn that the meniscus is very important for us,but it has many damage problems, its common injury is meniscus tear, it is necessary to learn more about meniscus functions and protection tips,so make a better healthy life.

Knee meniscus cartilage tear treatment

Knee meniscus cartilage tear

Because of the meniscus is belonging to no vascular soft tissue, once it got injury is difficult healing by normal treatment, the surgery is just suture the injury of meniscus , if the tear is serious, the torn meniscus must be resected.It is not necessary have the surgery when suffering no serious meniscal tear, if your injuries as long as it doesn’t affect your daily life and work, the conservative treatment is the best choice, the surgery does not have very good effect for the initial tear, after all the operation is also a regular failure, unless it seriously affect your normal life and work, then have a surgery,  but must remember that do not do too much sports, especially the intense exercise,have an external application of traditional Chinese medicine,the treatment for knee meniscus cartilage tear is better.

The treatment of meniscus cartilage tear reviews

  • I pasted the second evaluation after the plaster is received , it is really effective, I had my leg  is too heavy to lift, it was relaxed after the paste, felt some warm heating in the first day , there also some  slowly sinking warmth the next day, saying magic seems too mysterious, in total the effect is really very good.
  • The plaster is very good, the meniscus cartilage has good feeling in a few days, and there is no common cutaneous side effects,highly speaking of the plaster treatment.

Meniscus cartilage regeneration

I had my knee sprain and torn my meniscus badly in May of this year,but I didn’t care much about it, just rest  for a period of time before back to sports again, and continue to campaign for a while , then went to the hospital have an examination, be diagnosis of  the posterior horn of the meniscus injury, and the effusion of knee joint, the doctor suggested that better have operation, I didn’t agree and hesitate, I am only 18 years old. After the doctor’s request, to take the medicine every day, medicated conservative treatment, after the 3 months to feel better, sometimes also can running slowly, but bend at the knee back” click ” noisy sometimes will hurt a little, but now I have been afraid to jump. This time I go to the hospital several times,but the doctor say that let me keep on. The doctor said I was not badly, I do not know this situation can be cured ? Can the meniscus cartilage regeneration

Best reply :

Meniscus tear is consist of  three degrees. Without magnetic resonance film (MRI),I do not know the extent of your injury. If it is the light injury, there is a big chance of recovery. But generally speaking, more difficult to heal, or the time needed for healing is very long, may limit the activities of the time will be long. Mainly because of the major meniscus is no blood supply, the only nutritional just that little bit of joint capsule liquid. So it needs time to regeneration and heal,traditional chinese medicine can increase the regeneration and treat meniscus cartilage completely.While the meniscus injury is mainly caused by rolling motion. For example you injury, squatting when walking, is rolling, so will be very painful. A similar movement, have caused meniscus tear. This period of time must not be bent at the knee when doing exercise load. But the upright is harmless.

Knee patella pain meniscus remedy

The question :

My knee patella feeling pain because of too much playing football ,which end in patellar pointed up according to pain, it is not pain when walking , but painful when sit down, squat, bend the knees , think there are inflammation, this is what disease?Is it meniscus tear ? How to treat and remedy? What kind of medicine is better ? Please answer me, thank you.

The best answer :

Your story is not a very typical patellar softening (patellar cartilage inflammation) performance, there may be other knee problems that need to be inspected. The knee is the ring by other causes, such as the patellar dislocation or subluxation and knee joint within the meniscus tear and meniscal injury situation, etc.

every night with towel hot compress. As far as possible aviod voilent movement, pay attention to rest, and keep warm. After a short time should be able to recover.

Because I couldn’t face the patient, can’t fully understand the illness of your knee patella pain , I suggest you to have the specialized subject hospital seeing orthopedics, had better do a of the knee joint nuclear magnetic resonance (MRI) and add the patellar axis a take a piece, make clear further cause to do the treatment.
