The TeMPO trial (treatment of meniscal tears in osteoarthritis): rationale and design features for a four arm randomized controlled clinical trial.

BMC Musculoskelet Disord 2018 Dec 1;19(1):429. Epub 2018 Dec 1.

Orthopaedic and Arthritis Center for Outcomes Research (OrACORe) and Policy and Innovation eValuation in Orthopedic Treatments (PIVOT), Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Brigham and Women's Hospital, 60 Fenwood Road, BTM 5016, Boston, MA, 02115, USA.

Background: Meniscal tears often accompany knee osteoarthritis, a disabling condition affecting 14 million individuals in the United States. While several randomized controlled trials have compared physical therapy to surgery for individuals with knee pain, meniscal tear, and osteoarthritic changes (determined via radiographs or magnetic resonance imaging), no trial has evaluated the efficacy of physical therapy alone in these subjects.

Methods: The Treatment of Meniscal Tear in Osteoarthritis (TeMPO) Trial is a four-arm multi-center randomized controlled clinical trial designed to establish the comparative efficacy of two in-clinic physical therapy interventions (one focused on strengthening and one containing placebo) and two protocolized home exercise programs.

Prediction of Meniscal and Ligamentous Injuries in Lateral Tibial Plateau Fractures Based on Measurements of Lateral Plateau Widening on Multidetector Computed Tomography Scans.

Biomed Res Int 2018 29;2018:5353820. Epub 2018 Jul 29.

Department of Pediatric Orthopaedic Surgery, Children's Hospital, Hamburg-Altona, Germany.

Background: The influence of increasing lateral plateau widening on the frequency of meniscal and ligamentous lesions in lateral tibial plateau fractures has been examined in very few studies using plain radiographs. Because the amount of this parameter cannot be measured accurately on plain radiographs, the purpose of this survey was to look for a possible correlation between the extent of lateral plateau widening, as measured on multidetector CT (MDCT) scans, and different soft-tissue injuries determined from magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Materials And Methods: 55 patients with a lateral tibial plateau fracture were included in this retrospective case series. Read More

The Meniscal Comma Sign: Characterization and Treatment of a Displaced Fragment in the Meniscotibial Recess.

Orthopedics 2018 May 9;41(3):e442-e444. Epub 2018 May 9.

Displaced parrot beak flap tears in the meniscotibial recess are complex tears of the meniscus that begin as central radial tears and progressively extend toward the periphery, creating a detached fragment. These tears have not been described in the literature, but the authors have described them as the "meniscal comma sign" based on their appearance on magnetic resonance imaging. Displaced fragments are clinically significant because of the pain and mechanical symptoms they can cause as a result of tenting of the deep medial collateral ligament. Read More

Medial meniscal extrusion: Detection, evaluation and clinical implications.

Eur J Radiol 2018 May 6;102:115-124. Epub 2018 Mar 6.

Department of Radiology, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, Little Rock, AR, United States. Electronic address:

The menisci play an important role in knee kinematics. Their unique anatomy allows them to channel forces generated during knee movements through the larger tibio-femoral condylar surfaces while simultaneously resisting deleterious hoop stresses. Although physiologic meniscal extrusion occurs with every knee joint movement, pathologic meniscal extrusion subjects the knee to persistent and excessive load transmission. Read More
