About the disease

Meniscus tear is a knee injury, when the meniscus becomes torn due to various factors. Meniscus is a C-shaped disk, which is responsible for balancing the knee and keeping it steady. It also helps the knee to carry out the weight it holds during the day. Meniscus tear can appear because of sudden and rapid turn of the knee, when it is twisted. It can also be caused by the age, when meniscus wears off and by knee injuries, which can be a result of athletic and other activities, connected to sport. Lifting weight also affects the knee not in the best way.

Symptoms

  • Swelling in the knee
  • Decreased range of knee`s mobility
  • Irritation of the joints
  • Difficulty with walking
  • Problem with bending the knee

Meniscus tears are staged according to the damage they cause. In minor meniscus tear patients usually experience swelling and pain, which goes away after several days. Moderate meniscus tear causes the pain which appear during knee movement, such as going upstairs, bending or squatting. Severe meniscus tear is manifested by pain, which does not go away. Patients in this stage are unable to straighten the knee, because it can be locked due to the injury. In this case they need to undergo treatment immediately.

According to the US National Library of Medicine, the incidence of meniscal injuries is 8.27 in 1000 persons. Men are 20% more likely to have such injury than women.

Diagnosis

  • Physical examination is used to determine, if it is meniscus that causes the pain or the cause of unpleasant feeling is some other knee condition, such as arthritis. Physical examination is also used to determine range of motion of patient`s knee.
  • X-Ray is used to see the degree of damage to the meniscus and understand which type of treatment is the best for this particular case.
  • MRI can give a more precise image of the tear. 

Treatment

  • Arthroscopy is commonly used surgery for treatment of meniscus tear during which a damaged meniscus is repaired or trimmed. This is a minimally invasive procedure, which is safer than open surgery, as it has less complications and recovery time is shorter. Doctor does two little incisions through which an arthroscope is inserted into the knee. After this procedure there may be a swelling which will go away in a matter of several days.
  • In some cases, surgeon can remove the meniscus if it is damaged too badly. Such procedure is called meniscectomy, but it is used less than arthroscopy.

Overall, meniscus tear surgery has minimal risks and patients are able to return to their normal lifestyle several weeks after it.
