This ebook focuses upon a problem of the meniscus that is frequently missed by the investigating doctors - meniscal avulsion...
The book explores the anatomy and function of the menisci, and how an injury can rip loose the moorings of this structure from the bone at the back or the front - where it is not easy for the surgeon to appreciate unless deliberately looking for it.
