Floating Meniscus-MRI

  • Meniscal detachment is described as displacement of the meniscus 5 mm or more from the tibial plateau in association with uncovering of the tibial plateau cartilage or fluid interposition between the peripheral edge of the meniscus and the tibial plateau.
  • Floating meniscus in which the meniscus floats above the tibial plateau without separating entirely from the capsule, indicating a tear of the meniscotibial coronary ligament.
  • The presence of fluid completely surrounding the entirety of one or both horns of either meniscus should alert the possibility of a meniscal detachment.
