What is a Meniscal Tear?

Description of the disease:

A meniscal tear is a injury to the cartilage ring in the knee joint, which can occur as a result of trauma or tissue wear and tear.


Meniscal tears are divided into two types: vertical and horizontal.


  • Pain in the knee joint
  • Swelling
  • Weakness or immobility of the joint


A meniscal tear most often occurs as a result of injury during sports activities or during everyday movements, such as squats or turns.


Clinical examinations, x-rays, and MRI are used to diagnose a meniscal tear.


Treatment may include conservative methods, such as physiotherapy, or surgical intervention for partial or complete removal of the damaged meniscus.


  • Strengthening of muscles and ligaments
  • Avoiding traumatic loads on the knee
  • Use of protective gear during sports activities


Treatment of a meniscal tear is carried out by a surgeon or a traumatologist-orthopedist.
