Is this tear in a weight bearing area?
« on: August 20, 2011, 09:59:42 PM »
Findings:
Oblique  increased signal is present in the posterior horn of the mid meniscus extending to the inferior surface from the free edge to the periphery consistent with tear. A small amount of adjacent fluid is present.

Minimal subcortical increased signal is present in the medial femoral condyles at the medial meniscal insertion. A small amount of increased signal is also present on the lateral aspect of the lateral femoral condyles. Findings are consistent with mild marrow edema.
Cartilage appears intact.

The lateral meniscus, anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments, extensor mechanism, lateral collateral ligament, and iliotibial band are intact.

Conclusion:

Flap tear posterior horn medial meniscus.


If this flap were to be removed would it be in a weight bearing area?
