Study group were consists; 32 knees of 32 patients ;20 male ,12 female with mean age was 33.5 with 8.5 Standart deviation (SD) and 11 patient had discoid meniscus whereas 2 patient's had additional medial meniscal tear .
Mean age of the patients with lateral meniscal tears was 43.3 ,SD 15.9 .
Age of our patients significantly lower then those of patients with lateral meniscal tears.P=0.00006
Between the study group and group with lateral meniscal tears no statiscically significant results were achieved by gender and having discoid configuration so P values were 0.18 and 0.057 respectively.
66 of the patients have had additional medial meniscal tear in out of 130 patients so our patients’ tears seemed so isolated as only 2 of 32 had medial meniscur tear.
There was statistically significant difference between our patients and with those with lateral meniscal injury group.P=0.0000014
All tears were horizontal in shape and cysts were multiloculated nodular in form ,mean lenghts of tear and mean diameter of cysts were 11.1mm and 9.7mm respectively.
Mean patellar tendon patella ratio and femorotibial alignment in coronal plane were 1.11 and 175 degrees.No comparements were aimed in these data between the groups.
