HUMAN PHENOTYPE - ANNOTATIONS

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) is downloaded weekly from http://compbio.charite.de/hudson/job/hpo/lastStableBuild/artifact/ontology/release/hp.obo. The file downloaded is considered the "last stable build" available for the ontology. For more about the HPO, view their website at http://www.human-phenotype-ontology.org/.

Accession:HP:0032191 term browser browse the term
Definition:A tear in the cartilaginous pad (meniscus) of the knee.
Comment:Not all meniscal injuries require surgery. Some of them have the ability to heal. The meniscal tear pattern and the presence of adequate vascularity are both key points. Tears within 3 mm of the meniscosynovial junction usually have an adequate blood supply that allows healing. Tears of 5 mm or more from this junction are considered avascular and need surgical intervention.
