Disease relevance of Menisci, Tibial


High impact information on Menisci, Tibial

  • Discoid medial meniscus [3].
  • In addition, dermatan sulfate levels increased significantly in the middle and outer zones of the lateral menisci compared with the same zones of the meniscus from the saline-treated group [4].
  • There was 0.20 +/- 0.01 and 0.25 +/- 0.04 microg PRG4/cm(2) area of lateral and medial meniscus surface, respectively [5].
  • This difference in translation patterns indicates that the posterior horn of the medial meniscus might encounter shear, potentially explaining the high rate of secondary medial meniscal tears in patients with ACL-deficiency [6].
  • Meniscal protrusion is more frequently present in the medial meniscus and averaged less than 3 millimeters in normal volunteers in either the sagittal or coronal MR imaging plane [7].

Associations of Menisci, Tibial with chemical compounds


Gene context of Menisci, Tibial

  • In general, the increase in COL1A1 and COL6A3 mRNA concentrations was greater in medial menisci than in lateral menisci [19].
  • Even chondral fractures of the lateral femoral condyle outnumbered medial meniscus tears [6 (17%) versus 4 (11%)] in patients with a second-degree MCL sprain [20].
  • In reconstructing the ACL, ideal tibial tunnel placement requires an understanding of the unique anatomy of the ACL tibial footprint and its relationship to the PCL, lateral meniscus, and medial tibial part of the spine [21].
  • Pathologic examination of the resected specimen showed osteogenic sarcoma of the patella and a completely separate 1.0-cm nodule of osteogenic sarcoma tissue growing in the anterior horn of the lateral meniscus [10].
  • The anterior horn of the lateral meniscus moves 6.3 mm, and the posterior horn 4.0 mm, with 3.4 mm of radial displacement [22].
