AB - The menisci are two crescent-shaped fibrocartilagenous structures that are found within each knee between the femoral condyles and the tibial plateau (Fig. 1.2.1). For many years, the menisci were considered to be the functionless remains of a leg muscle [31]. Indeed, in his paper in 1942, McMurray [21] stated that When the knee-joint is opened on the anterior aspect, and the suspected cartilage appears normal, its removal can be undertaken with confidence if the diagnosis of a posterior tear has been arrived at (clinically) prior to operation. A far too common error is shown in the incomplete removal of the injured meniscus. © Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg 2010.
