Common peroneal nerve injury caused by suture entrapment is a complication of arthroscopic inside-out lateral meniscus repair. In the literature, the treatment of this complication has been described as immediate reexploration. We present a case of recovery after late neurolysis performed 7 months postoperatively for a common peroneal nerve neuropraxia. In addition to describing return of function after late exploration, we discuss the management and prevention of this complication.
