Do you know that Meniscus tears or torn meniscus are common in sports enthusiasts who perform constant twisting or knee rotation? It is one of the most common injuries on the knee. It is believed that any activity that causes you to forcefully rotate or twist your knee, especially when placing pressure like your full weight on it, might cause a meniscal tear.
The meniscus is a thick, crescent-shaped cartilage pad that acts as a smooth surface of the knee joint to move on. The medial side is torn more frequently, and more men injure their meniscus more often compared to women.
Usually when a tear occurs, an individual may feel swelling (in the knee joint); pain in the area of the tear, “catching” symptoms, and the knee may not be extended or bent. These symptoms become worse when vigorous rotating movements are performed and during squatting.
The only way to relieve discomfort especially when a large bone fragment becomes lodged between the bearing surfaces is a Meniscal Arthroscopic Surgery or Arthroscopic Meniscus Repair.
Usually, a Meniscal Arthroscopic Surgery is a surgical procedure performed in an outpatient basis to repair torn knee cartilage.
Arthroscopy is performed by an orthopaedic surgeon (bone specialist). He makes a small incision on the knee and inserts the arthroscope (a small pencil-like instrument with a camera) into the knee joint. The arthroscope then sends images of the knee structures in detail to a TV monitor. The orthopaedic surgeon uses the arthroscope to repair and remove the damaged cartilage.
After the healing process, postoperative physical therapy is advised to regain full knee function, which occurs 4-5 months after arthroscopic surgery.
