    I think that meniscus is menisco, is a bone in our knees.

    Hola chics, "meniscus" are not bones, but a crescent-shaped fibrocartilaginous structure of the knee.

    Please, let´s try not to confuse other foreros, right?

    Hi Luccia, Welcome to the forums!!!
    - meniscectomía = meniscectomy
    - meniscopatía = meniscopathy (Here you have a good source!!)

    Are you sure the word is not "femoral"??:confused:

    Hope this has been of some help!

    Eugin, you're brilliant, thank you.

    While I'm at it, you wouldn't happen to be able to help me with these other words???
    - cuadricipital
    - tróclea
    - cóndilos femorales

    Thanks a million....

    cóndilos femorales = femoral condyles
    tróclea = trochlea
    tendón cuadricipital = quadriceps tendon
    Hola Eugin,

    Si es correcto. En español se refiere al femur+rotula.
    femoro-patelar = femoropatellar
