Risk factors for Lateral Meniscus Posterior Root Tears in the Anterior Cruciate Ligament Injured Knee

An Epidemiological Analysis of 3956 Patients

This study is the largest published series of ACL reconstructions evaluating the epidemiology of meniscal root tears. It allows surgeons to understand risk factors and hold an appropriate index of suspicion for these injuries. It is hoped that this will reduce the rate of missed diagnoses which arise due to low sensitivity and specificity of MRI scans and physical examination tests.
