Quantitative and Qualitative Assessment of Posterolateral Meniscal Anatomy: Defining the Popliteal Hiatus, Popliteomeniscal Fascicles, and the Lateral Meniscotibial Ligament


Background:

Surgical treatment of lateral meniscal tears can be challenging due to the greater mobility of the lateral meniscus, thin capsule, and management of the popliteal hiatus. There has been a lack of quantitative assessments of the structural attachments to the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus (PHLM) to guide repairs.

Purpose:

To qualitatively and quantitatively describe […]

Posterior Meniscal Root Repairs – Outcomes of an Anatomic Transtibial Pull-Out Technique


AJSM 2016

Background: Outcomes after transtibial pull-out repair for posterior meniscal root tears remain underreported, and factors that may affect outcomes are unknown.

Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to compare patient-centered outcomes after transtibial pull-out repair for posterior root tears in patients \50 and 50 years of age. We […]
