Case Study
The article presents a case study of a 17-year old girl who had her left knee injured in a fall from a bicycle and receive a follow-up treatment after 20 years. It mentions that the patient received a complete avulsion of the lateral meniscus body and posterior root after complaining of pain and inability to support the extremity weight. It states that the follow-up treatment after 20 years shows the thickness preservation of the articular cartilage and the undamaged anterior cruciate ligament.
