Conclusion

Meniscal root tears lead to altered biomechanics and progressive osteoarthritis of the knee. Posterior meniscal root tears represent an often overlooked pathology. We believe that a detailed description of PMMRL pathology would be helpful for orthopedic surgeons to manage PMMRL tears in clinical practice. With a greater understanding of the importance of meniscal root injuries, more emphasis has been placed recently on the development of surgical techniques to repair meniscal root tears, to prevent long-term sequelae.
