Knives, Surgical, Meniscus

Definition : Surgical knives designed for cutting the crescent-shaped disks of fibrocartilage attached to bones (i.e., meniscus). These knives typically consist of manual, sturdy, handheld instruments with a wide, straight handle. Often attached to the proximal end is a small perpendicular plate which permits application of pressure. The blade is long, flat, and tapered and may have a straight or concave, U-shaped distal end. Meniscus knives are mainly used in orthopedic procedures such as orthopedic meniscectomy of the tibia at the knee joint.
