    Abstract : Meniscal extrusion (ME) in the knee joint is defined as when the peripheral border of the meniscus is substantially located outside the joint margin. Prior studies have reported that ME is associated with meniscal tears, meniscal degeneration, and the presence of knee osteoarthritis (OA). READ MORE

    Abstract : Osteoarthritis (OA) is a very common disease, especially in the knee. It is characterized by the breakdown of articular cartilage but involves all parts of the joint. OA is usually diagnosed at a late stage when the articular cartilage has begun to disappear. What happens before these macroscopic alterations is to alarge extent unknown. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Entheses of the Medial Meniscns and Ligaments of the Knee Joint : Descriptive and Experimental Studies
