Torn Meniscus in the knee is common after twisting injury.
It presents as pain along the inner aspect of the knee, and limitation of knee flexion. It may sometimes produce locking episodes. MRI is the investigation of choice.
In patients with multiple episodes of locking, and limitation in daily activities, arthroscopy is indicated. The torn piece of meniscus is excised during surgery. In early cases with large tears, repair of the meniscal tissue may be attempted, however success of such surgery depends on the location of tear, and extent of damage to meniscal tissue
