Influence of Medial Meniscus Bucket-Handle Repair in Setting of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction on Tibiofemoral Contact Mechanics: A Biomechanical Study


Purpose:

To compare the impact of an inside-out repair versus meniscectomy of a medial meniscus bucket-handle tear in restoring native contact areas and pressures across the tibial plateaus in the setting of an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction (ACLR).

Methods:

Ten fresh-frozen cadaveric knees were tested in 6 knee conditions (1: intact; 2: ACL torn and bucket-handle […]

Biomechanical Comparison of Vertical Mattress and Cross-stitch Suture Techniques and Single- and Double-Row Configurations for the Treatment of Bucket-Handle Medial Meniscal Tears


Background:

Given the variety of suturing techniques for bucket-handle meniscal repair, it is important to assess which suturing technique best restores native biomechanics.

Purpose/Hypothesis:

To biomechanically compare vertical mattress and cross-stitch suture techniques, in single- and double-row configurations, in their ability to restore native knee kinematics in a bucket-handle medial meniscal tear model. The hypothesis was that […]

Current Trends Among US Surgeons in the Identification, Treatment, and Time of Repair for Medial Meniscal Ramp Lesions at the Time of ACL Surgery


2019 The Orthopaedic Journal of Sports Medicine

Meniscal ramp lesions are becoming increasingly recognized. Ramp lesions have been described as tears at the posterior meniscocapsular junction and/or tears of the posterior meniscotibial ligament, and they have a reported incidence of 16% to 40% of all anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears. Based on their location, these […]

Biomechanical Comparison of 3 Novel Repair Techniques for Radial Tears of the Medial Meniscus

2019 AJSM

Complete radial tears of the medial meniscus have been functionally described as being similar to a total meniscectomy, and they represent a challenging problem to treat. Without treatment, radial tears of the medial meniscus can lead to rapid joint degeneration. Historically, radial tears were treated with partial or […]

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 […]

Intramedullary Tibial Nailing Reduces the Attachment Area and Ultimate Load of the Anterior Medial Meniscal Root

AJSM 2015

Intramedullary (IM) nailing is the treatment of choice among orthopaedic surgeons for tibial shaft fractures. However, because of the close proximity of the nail’s insertion site to the anterior medial (AM) meniscal root on the tibial plateau, there is increased risk of iatrogenic injury to the meniscal root during nailing. The purpose of this […]
