The purpose of this webinar is to examine the growing problem of previously under-recognized and under-treated meniscus root, radial, and ramp tears. During this webinar, we will discuss the evaluation, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes for meniscal root, radial, and ramp tears. We will discuss the impact that repairing these tears can have on concomitant ligament and cartilage procedures and examine the outcomes published in the literature. We will discuss the role of biologics in treating these specific meniscus tears. The faculty will also present cases to illustrate the important technical pearls for meniscus repair in each of these injuries.
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
· Understand the physical exam and diagnostic tests pertinent to evaluating a patient with a meniscus tear.
· Identify each tear pattern on coronal, sagittal, and axial MRI sequences.
· Review treatment options with an emphasis on biomechanics for meniscus repair of ramp, radial, and root tears. We will also critically look at the outcomes of these injuries treated with repair versus debridement.
· Discuss tips and tricks for performing a safe and effective meniscus repair of ramp, radial, and root tears
