A horizontal line of high signal intensity seen not extending to superior or inferior articular surface of posterior horn of medial meniscus but extend to meniscocapsular end...is this described as tear?

Probably not: MRI readings are never exact. This one is vague and indicates possible inside damage to the meniscus. When it does not extend to the superior or inferior articular surface then it is not a standard meniscal tear which does extend to one or both of those surfaces. This condition might be causing you problems, but arthroscopic surgery is not truly indicated unless your knee is locking. Good luck! ...Read more

I have a horizontal oblique tear extending to the inferior articular surface of posterior horn of medial meniscus.  Also small joint effusion.  Can it heal completely without surgery?

No Meniscus Tears : Cannot heal on their own as the meniscus tissue has no real blood supply in an adult. Surgery will probably be the only thing that can treat it. A torn meniscus means you have torn the cartilage ring of tissue that sits between your femur and tibia in the knee joint. If it is displaced that means it has torn and a flap of tissue is shifted to the middle of the knee joint. ...Read more

It depends: Arthroscopic surgery to repair the torn meniscus if the tear is in a location that can be repaired or excision of the loose piece of the meniscus if the symptoms are that of pain, clicking or giving out of the knee. If you are not having any significant problems you can choose to leave it alone till symptoms recur. Good luck. ...Read more
