A 22-year-old male had a meniscopathy operation using spinal anesthesia. After the operation, the patient reported a throbbing headache. His brain computed tomography (CT) showed subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) and hyperdense dural venous sinuses suspicious for thrombosis. Filling defects were observed in the superior sagittal and right transverse sinuses on the contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance images. The patient was diagnosed with cerebral venous sinus thrombosis (CVST). On the tenth day of his admission, his clinical findings progressed and heparin therapy was initiated after resorption of hemorrhage was observed in a second non-contrast CT scan...

Cytokines, which have been demonstrated in synovial fluids during various joint diseases, play an important role in mediating synovial inflammation and in regulating the immune response of many inflammatory processes. We studied synovial fluid, serum, and synovial fragments obtained from 33 patients--10 affected by serious gonarthrosis re-quiring a prosthetic implant, 8 with knee prosthesis aseptic loosening, and (as controls) 15 affected by degenerative meniscopathies--to evaluate the degree of inflammation and level of interleukins (IL-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10) and interferon gamma secretion...

The involvement of the synovium is common in phlogistic processes of various joint diseases. Apart from synoviocytes and the other cells in the synovial tissue, circulating cells recruited from peripheral blood also participate in the phlogistic process. The increased expression of adhesion molecules on both circulating and endothelial cell surface may further this recruitment. We studied 15 patients affected by serious gonarthrosis requiring a prosthetic implant (GPI) and 7 with knee prosthesis aseptic loosening (KPL) to evaluate adhesion molecule expression and phlogistic infiltration in the synovium using immunohistochemistry and microscopic analysis...

The first aim of this work is not only to review the localised perspective of meniscopathy, concerned with the consequences of meniscectomy, but to also view it in a broader dimension, in the behavioural aspect--related to postural activity. The second aim is to establish the relationship between these two dimensions. Meniscopathies invariably lead to degenerative alterations of the knee joint--not sufficiently explained by the local factors--that result in a situation of osteoarthritis. Some investigators established that the osteoarthritis process should not be confined only to the mechanical responsibility, due to some studies that also confirm the existence of biochemical alterations...

In 94 patients 112 knees were examined after high tibial osteotomy for varus and valgus gonarthrosis. Preoperatively, there were 71 varus and 23 valgus deformities. The mean follow-up period was 9.0 years (range 2-21 years). Concerning the pain on walking and the pain at rest, we noted good and excellent results in 73% and 65%, respectively. The radiological evaluation showed an improvement or a persistence of the stage of arthrosis in 69.5% of the reviewed cases. The results according to the HSS score as an objective parameter showed in over 50% an improvement of the patients' situation...

COMPARATIVE STUDY

The article reports on 364 double-contrast arthrographics and 185 arthroscopies. The results obtained in 126 patients in whom both arthrography and arthroscopy had been conducted, were compared. It became evident that arthrography is of high informative value in the diagnosis of lesions of the meniscus, so that preference may well be given to this method in non-specific knee-joint complaints where meniscopathy is suspected. Arthroscopies are indicated in cases of clinico-arthrographic doubt. Trial arthrotomy for clarifying doubtful meniscus lesions without previous exploitation of all arthrographic/arthroscopic possibilities is no longer justified and should be abandoned...

Bilateral meniscus lesions without an adequate trauma are rare. We observed a patient with such an injury caused by alkaptonuric ochronosis. Radiographs revealed a calcifying degeneration of the intervertebral disks and osteoarthritic alterations of the large joints. The surgeon should think of this disease finding a yellow brown discoloration of the cartilage at arthrotomy.

The skeletal muscle undergoes selective cellular changes in the sense of the myopathic and neurogeneous tissue syndrome, in the case of degenerative joint diseases. The occurring FT-fibre atrophy is coupled with a decrease of the glycolytic activity and of the LDH isoenzyme pattern. A neurogeneous component is under discussion.

We re-examined 800 arthrographies performed between 1984 and 1986 according to the Lindblom-Ficat-Philippe method. 280 had pure meniscal lesions. In the remaining 520 cases, arthrography revealed extrameniscal pathology, sometimes associated with meniscal lesions, as well as other pathologies which were either negative or equivocal. The purpose of this study was to emphasize the advantages of a simple method of diagnosis applicable to out patients in the study of extrameniscal pathologies which are often concealed by the associated meniscopathy...

The results of CT examination of meniscopathies in 54 patients, most of them competitive athletes, are presented. CT has an overall accuracy of about 90 per cent and can hence be used for diagnosing a lesion of the meniscus with a reasonable amount of safety, while being rapid and avoiding unnecessary exposure to stress. This method, therefore, should be a focal point of the imaging methods and thus be placed between the specialist doctor's findings and possible surgery. The pros and cons of CT compared with other imaging methods are discussed...

We report on the elastin, collagen and ground substance compartments in the human meniscus and their interrelationships. Elastin is found in neonates and shows both an arrangement parallel to the collagen fibre and into net-like structures. Branching, caliber inconstancy, rupture and the phenomenon of the "rubber band" are findings within the different forms of the meniscopathy. The function of the elastin compartment cannot be visualised without suggesting "puncta fixa". The morphology of the collagen-elastin-junctions has been described and their possible mode of function is discussed with the help of a model...

The possibilities and limitations of rapid echo acquisition methods in various posttraumatic, degenerative and inflammatory diseases of the joints are demonstrated and discussed on the basis of a pilot study. It is evident that specific information important for clarifying effusions and meniscopathies is supplied especially by "water"-like images. Limitations of spatial resolution are at present still a limiting factor.

With reference to 3579 meniscectomies performed in our clinic during 18 years as well as to cases with severe knee damage treated by arthroplasty, arthrodesis or correction osteotomy and their aetiopathological analysis with regard to previously performed meniscectomies, the following conclusions are drawn: Earlier meniscectomies seem to occur relatively often (up to 20%) in clinical cases of severe destructive processes in the knee e.g. knee arthritis. With reference to 3579 meniscectomies performed in this period this number is very low (1...

Traumatic and degenerative changes in the meniscus can be demonstrated well by MRT, but the small size and complex anatomical structure of the menisci present practical problems. A correct understanding is only possible by images in several planes and good resolution, making the examination a lengthy procedure. A technique is therefore described using 3-D images and reconstruction of high-resolution films, which allows rapid examination of the menisci in optimal planes.

COMPARATIVE STUDY
F Corbetti, G Tomasella
In order to evaluate the diagnostic capabilities of sonography (US) in meniscal lesions of the knee, 65 unquestionable cases of meniscopathy at arthrography were studied with high-resolution US. In 92% of the cases, inhomogeneous echo structure was demonstrated in correspondence with pathological meniscus, with irregular hyperechoic areas and, in some cases, with hyperechoic lines corresponding to the tear. 40% of patients presented with tumefaction and external bulging of the parameniscal region, while in 87% of the cases the articular capsule was thickened...

The authors report the results of the study of 48/112 patients who underwent US examination of the knee for gonalgia. Meniscopathy or capsular-ligamentous lesions were clinically suspected. US results were compared with arthroscopic or athrotomic findings; the latter two methods were considered as the reference gold standard. US exhibited 81.2% overall diagnostic accuracy, thus confirming its limitations, more evident than those of arthroscopy and arthrography, CT and MR imaging. Major limitations of US were its failed recognition of meniscal tears smaller than 5-6 mm, and its failed distinction of degenerative meniscopathies from common meniscal fractures (with the exception of 2 cases)...
