The specific meniscus injury pattern were divided into many patterns. Nowadays, the meniscus root injury, radial tear meniscus, bucket handle tear meniscus and Ramp lesion were particularly focused on many way to manage and still controversial a lot of issues. Meniscus root tears (MRTs) and Ramp lesion are the most ignored, or misdiagnosed causes of chronic knee pain. Most patients delayed seeking treatment, consequently resulting in cartilage loss, and leading to the condition progressing to osteoarthritis knee. This has resulted in the rate of MR and Ramp repair increase significantly. The bucket handle meniscus tear trend to strong saving the anatomical meniscus and avoid to menisectomy. This article, on the other hand, will reveal you how to save and secure a nearly native meniscus fixation. In case of the radial meniscus, the partial meniscectomy is still used to treat this type of injury today, but it does not prevent degenerative changes from occurring, which can lead to unfavorable outcomes. Meniscal repair is a popular procedure for treating radial tears as an alternative to surgery. However, this pattern of meniscus tear can be difficult to repair and has a high failure rate, the arthroscopic meniscus repair techniques are published.
