Title: Meniskus RAMP lesion fake or not?
Lesion of the medial meniscus are commonly associated with anterior cruciate ligemnt rupture. Ramp lesion consist of longitudinal peripheral tears of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus. Magnetic resonance imaging (mri) scans have been reported to have a low sensitivity, and consequently, ramp lesions often go undiagnosed. Therefore, to rule out a ramp lesion, an arthroscopic evaluation with probing of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus should be performed. Several treatment options have been reported, including non surgical management, inside-out meniscal repair, or all-inside meniscal repair. And still there is no consensus found in treatment.
