What is Meniscal lesions?
The meniscus is one of the two menisci of the knee which is crescent-shaped fibrocartilaginous tissue that acts like a pad to disperse our body weight. It reduces friction during movement (Please refer to the figure on the left). Meniscal injuries can be divided into two categories: Degenerative tears (results from severe meniscus attrition induced by osteoarthritis and other joint diseases) and traumatic tears (mostly induced by sports injuries). Although severe form of meniscus injuries may require surgery, Hymovis® can relief pain and other symptoms associated with mild to moderate meniscus injuries.
