Abstract

Bone marrow edema (BME) after meniscus injury and risk factors for subchondral insufficiency fracture of the knee (SIFK) have been reported. However, their association with medial meniscus posterior root tear (MMPRT) remains unknown. We investigated the association of BME volume (BME-V), posterior shinycorner lesion (PSCL), and SIFK with MMPRT to examine the correlations between BME-V and medial meniscus extrusion (MME), PSCL and duration from injury to the time of magnetic resonance imaging (duration), and SIFK and duration. Twenty-nine patients who underwent surgery for MMPRT were included (mean age, 59.2; range, 39-84). The presence of PSCL, femoral BME-V (cm3), and SIFK grade (1-4) were evaluated. Preoperative factors, such as MME (mm) and duration (weeks), were investigated using multivariate linear/ logistic regression analyses. Multivariate linear regression analysis revealed duration as a significant factor for high-grade SIFK (p<0.01). Multivariate logistic regression analysis revealed duration as a significant factor for the presence of PSCL (odds ratio=0.94, p<0.05). A long duration of MMPRT leads to severe MME and highgrade SIFK (3 and 4), often resulting in knee arthroplasty. Early diagnosis of MMPRT and pullout repair can prevent severe MME and high-grade SIFK.
