What is it about?
This article discusses the relationship between medial meniscus extrusion (MME) and various knee joint pathologies, ligament injuries, and osteoarthritis. It challenges the conventional 3mm threshold for significant MME and suggests lower values may be more appropriate, based on correlations with knee stabilizers and other factors.
