Visualising an operative sequence
A patient education illustration dating back to 2003! Arthroscopic procedure to stitch a tear in the Right medial meniscus.
As we are looking at the tibial plateau from a “supero-postero-medial” angle, having removed the femur from the scene hardly distracts the lay viewer. While providing the prospective patient with extensive information about the procedure, the orthopaedic surgeon shows this illustration to explain how the sutures would bring together parts of the meniscus.
