Clinical Characteristics and Outcomes After Primary ACL Reconstruction and Meniscus Ramp Repair

Clinical Outcomes of Inside-Out Meniscal Repair According to Anatomic Zone of the Meniscal Tear


Background:

There is significant discrepancy in the reported vascularity within the meniscus, and a progressively diminishing blood supply may indicate a differential healing capacity of tears that is dependent on the affected meniscal zone.

Purpose:

To examine the outcomes after inside-out meniscal repair in all 3 meniscal vascularity zones.

Study Design:

Cohort study; Level of evidence, 3.

Methods:

Patients were included […]

Clinical Outcomes of Inside-Out Meniscal Repair According to Anatomic Zone of the Meniscal Tear

Current Concepts Review: Meniscal Repair

The meniscus was once considered a functionless remnant of muscle that should be removed in its entirety at any sign of abnormality. Its role in load distribution, knee stability, and arthritis prevention has since been well established. The medial and lateral menisci are now considered vital structures in the […]

Outcomes After Biologically Augmented Isolated Meniscal Repair With Marrow Venting Are Comparable With Those After Meniscal Repair With Concomitant Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

2017 AJSM

Meniscal repair procedures are increasingly performed because of an enhanced understanding of the long-term deleterious consequences of meniscectomy, the benefits of meniscal preservation, and the improved techniques and devices available for meniscal repair. While meniscal repair has demonstrated a higher reoperation rate than meniscectomy, recent studies have reported […]
