The menisci of the knee are the most important structures in the knee. The cruciates are important to knee stability but the menisci are most important because at this point, the menisci cannot be repaired or regenerated. There are two menisci, the medial and lateral, found in each knee. The larger of the two menisci is the medial. The most often damaged of the two is also the medial meniscus.
