RAMP lesion

RAMP lesion is a tear of peripheral attachment of the posterior horn of medial meniscus and is typically associated with acute or chronic ACL tears. So a careful inspection of posterior peripheral attachment of the meniscus during arthroscopy is mandatory in case of acute or chronic ACL tears. Often this will reveal severe lesions that would otherwise be missed and left untreated.
