Knee Injury - Torn Meniscus with Arthroscopic Repair
Knee Injury - Torn Meniscus with Arthroscopic Repair

This set of medical illustrations depicts a knee injury with arthroscopic repair. The first drawing orients the viewer to the normal anatomy of the knee, including the femur, patella and tibia, and indicates the plane of section for the next image. The second drawing depicts the pre-operative condition, including a partial tear of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus, hypertrophic synovium, partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament and partial tear of the right anterior horn of the medial meniscus. The next four drawings show the arthroscopic procedure. Image A shows the placement of arthroscopic instruments into the knee joint through separate stab incisions. Image B depicts the debridement of the anterior medial meniscus and posterior lateral meniscus back to stable margins. Image C shows the removal of a large amount of hypertrophic synovium from both the medial and lateral compartments of the knee. Image D depicts the debridement of the torn portion of the anterior cruciate ligament.
