Knee meniscus tears are a prevalent orthopedic injury that can significantly impact an individual's quality of life. This abstract provides an overview of knee meniscus tears, including their causes, symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment options. Symptoms of knee meniscus tears often include localized pain, swelling, limited range of motion, and a sensation of "locking" or "catching" in the knee during movement. Clinically, physical examinations, imaging (such as MRI), and arthroscopy are used to diagnose meniscus tears. Establishing the best management strategy requires a thorough study regarding the meniscal structure, including vascularity, zones, function, and impacted movements along related symptoms. Optimal therapy additionally involves a thorough evaluation of the patient's features, comorbidities, post-repair rehabilitation, and general function and satisfaction. Treatment options for knee meniscus tears encompass conservative measures such as rest, ice, physical therapy, and knee bracing. Additionally, corticosteroid injections may be utilized to alleviate pain and inflammation. In cases of severe tears or failed conservative treatments, surgical interventions like arthroscopic procedures for repair or partial meniscectomy may be necessary. Early diagnosis and appropriate treatment, guided by the tear's characteristics and the patient's specific circumstances, are crucial for achieving successful outcomes and improving the patient's overall quality of life.
