Meniscus Injury and Early Osteoarthritis

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Early Osteoarthritis

Abstract

Meniscal injuries are a frequently encountered clinical scenario and at present in patients of all age groups and activity levels. They have been known to occur as a result of trauma as well as joint degeneration, and whether they are a cause or consequence of osteoarthritis remains unclear. It is now known that a meniscal injury has both a biochemical and a biomechanical consequence, which results in the onset of joint degradation. In the past, meniscal tears were addressed by meniscectomy, but recent literature and evolving techniques have favoured repair strategies to preserve as much of the meniscus tissue as possible; however, these repairs have still been unable to restore the meniscal function. Addressing the biochemical changes in the knee joint post-meniscal injury and improving meniscal repair strategies with the addition of biological regenerative therapies result in better meniscal healing and, therefore, may reduce the incidence of osteoarthritis. In this chapter, we discuss meniscal injuries, their association with early osteoarthritis, and the current treatment trends and results for addressing meniscal injuries.
