Table 2 Translation of the Meniscus

From: Does simulated walking cause gapping of meniscal repairs?

Meniscal Translation       
  ML Displacement (mm) AP Displacement (mm) SI Displacement (mmm)
State LR to MS MS to TO LR to MS MS to TO LR to MS MS to TO
Intact −0.02 ± 0.01 0.02 ± 0.05 −0.63 ± 0.03 1.67 ± 0.11 −0.11 ± 0.02 −0.2 ± 0.06
Torn −0.03 ± 0.01 −0.16 ± 0.08 −0.86 ± 0.04 3.44 ± 0.17 −0.07 ± 0.03 −0.4 ± 0.06
Repaired −0.07 ± 0.03 0.11 ± 0.06 −0.97 ± 0.03 2.9 ± 0.14 0.14 ± 0.04 −0.27 ± 0.09
  1. This depicts the average values for the displacement of the meniscus during gait. For medial-lateral (ML) translation, positive values indicate translation toward the MCL. For anterior-posterior (AP), positive values indicate posterior translation. For superior-inferior displacement (SI), positive values indicate translation of the meniscus towards the femoral condyle
