What is Meniscus Injuries to the Knee?

A meniscus is a fibrocartilaginous structure within a joint and provides structural integrity. There are two menisci located within the knee (lateral meniscus and medial meniscus), which act to evenly distribute body weight throughout the knee joint.

There are many types of meniscal tears, generally divided into horizontal and vertical and they often occur alongside ACL injuries. If an ACL injury has occurred most of the symptoms will be that of an ACL tear. However, meniscal damage may occur following a compression and rotation injury to the knee which will present with sudden pain, gradual joint swelling over the course of a few hours, as well as possible locking or giving way of the knee joint.
