Descripción

The articular disk(meniscus) is a thin, oval plate of fibrocartilage present in several joints which separates synovial cavities. This separation of the cavity space allows for separate movements to occur in each space.

Ex : meniscus of knee joint, articular disks of the temporomandibular or stenoclavicular joints.
