Patients with this type of injury are six times more likely to develop the condition, study shows
knee injury

A major knee injury is never good news for patients, but a meniscal tear is more likely to result in knee osteoarthritis down the track than anterior cruciate ligament damage, a review has found.

Those with meniscal damage are six times more likely to develop osteoarthritis in the injured knee compared with the good knee at least 10 years after the injury, according to the review led by Danish researchers.
