Meniscal cyst

 

A meniscal cyst is an out pouching of joint fluid located along the peripheral margin of the meniscus, and is frequently associated with horizontal meniscal tears. It can also be due to compression injury to the periphery of the meniscus. An MRI is often warranted to assess if the meniscus is torn in order to guide whether conservative treatment will be sufficient in the form of physical therapy or if surgical intervention is needed.

 

New ways to heal joints can keep us fitter as we age
If we live longer, will our joints still work? While many diseases can kill you, arthritis has the potential to ruin your long life.
Metal has been used in patients since the time of Hippocrates (400 BCE) to repair broken bones and replace missing parts. The earliest metals included copper, tin or lead and often did not have the strength to last forever. Over the years, the metals we use have improved. They have become stronger and leach fewer ions into the body.
