The discoid meniscus

By Moshe Yaniv and Nehemia Blumberg


Discoid lateral meniscus is an intra-articular knee disorder typically presented in the young population and during adolescence. Different types of meniscal disorders and varied forms of presentation have been reported. The natural history depends on the type of anomaly and the presence of symptoms. Management of the disorder should be directed toward the resolution of the symptoms while preserving meniscal tissue and function. Modern surgical techniques enable suturing and preservation of meniscal tissue. The clinical manifestations, diagnostic modalities and criteria, accompanying conditions and practical management considerations are reviewed
