Meniscuses are composed of connective tissue and cartilaginous joints located on the upper three joint surfaces of the tibia in the shape of a half moon in the knee joint.
The inner meniscus C is the outer meniscus O. The part of the meniscus that is held in the joint capsule is veined, and the other parts are veins. The inner meniscus is more injured than the outer meniscus because it is less mobile.
The menisci have tasks such as providing joint stability, shock absorbe, providing surface harmony, even distribution of joint fluid, excessive flexion and braking of the extensor, adding burden to the joint and expanding the joint surface to reduce contact stress.
Meniscuses are usually injured after the rotation of the knee joint. Locking, emptying sensation, swelling in the knee joint, pain on the internal and external surfaces of the joint, and atrophy in the muscles in the anterior surface of the thigh are the main clinical examination findings. Fresh, stable, small edge ruptures can be treated conservatively. The treatment of meniscal tears outside this is the surgeon.
Arthroscopic surgery is performed in the surgeon. Edge tears under the age of 40 are erected. Partial or total menüsektomy is applied to other meniscus tears. After arthroscopic meniscus surgery
muscle exercises begin immediately. The patient is discharged the same day. Ice application is done for 3 days. The car can be used after 2 weeks. After 3 weeks, the spore may return. Damage caused by force applied from outside the human body is defined as trauma. Orthopedically, trauma is defined as fracture, dislocation and fracture dislocation.
Unfortunately, we are often faced with traffic accidents, firearm injuries, and fractures, dislocations, and broken dislocations that occur in our country. This type of injury results in improper boil or un-boil- ing if the resulting damage is not treated properly and timely. These unpleasant consequences affect the survival of the person, both health and socially.
Such negative consequences that may occur can be avoided by the quickest and most appropriate treatment and by the experienced physicians. With the prolongation of human life, osteoporosis (decrease in bone quality and strength) occurs with increased postmenopausal bone destruction, especially in women. Since osteoporotic bones are less resistant to trauma, severe fractures can occur with simple falls. Diagnosis and treatment of these patients should be done much faster and collecting should be the main aim.
