Methods and Materials


Routine knee MRI of patients referred from  outpatient clinics  with suspected  meniscus tear were collected between May 2015 and january 2016 .


1.5 Tesla Siemens Avanto (Erlangen ,Germany) and IMediplus Diagnoplus viewer DS3000 workstation (Turmap HealthCare, Mortsel, Belgium) were  used  to evaluate images.


725 of the patient were showed medial meniscus tear with some additional ligament problems whereas 130 patients were suffering from lateral meniscus tears.


64 patients have had both medial and lateral meniscus tears.


32 of the patient having  lateral meniscus tears with anteriorly located parameniscal cysts  had been chosen in patients with  lateral meniscal tears .


Meniscal tear morphology,age, gender,accompanience of discoid menisci,patellar tendon  lenght ratio and femorotibial alingnment in coronal plane were eveluated by one senior one junior radiologists where the   final desicions were achieved  by consensus..



Results were compared between the groups and statistical analyses were done using Ficher Exact test.P values lesser than 0.05 was considered statistically significant.
