Table 2 Concomitant injuries on MRI (i.e. the presence of oedema) in relation to the presence or absence of intraoperative meniscal ramp lesions

From: Medial meniscal ramp lesions in ACL-injured elite athletes are strongly associated with medial collateral ligament injuries and medial tibial bone bruising on MRI
