Utilization of Transtibial Centralization Suture Best Minimizes Extrusion and Restores Tibiofemoral Contact Mechanics for Anatomic Medial Meniscal Root Repairs in a Cadaveric Model


Background

Although posterior medial meniscal root (PMMR) repairs are often successful, postoperative meniscal extrusion after a root repair has been identified as a potential clinical problem.

Purpose/Hypothesis

The purpose was to quantitatively evaluate the tibiofemoral contact mechanics and extent of meniscal extrusion after a PMMR repair. It was hypothesized that the addition of a centralization suture (into […]

Influence of Meniscal and Chondral Lesions on Patient-Reported Outcomes After Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction at 2-Year Follow-up

Background: Meniscal and chondral lesions are commonly associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears, and these lesions may play a role in patient outcomes after ACL reconstruction.

Purpose: To determine the effects of the presence and location of meniscal and chondral lesions at the time of ACL reconstruction on patient-reported […]

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 […]

Incidence and Detection of Meniscal Ramp Lesions on Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Patients With Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

2017 AJSM

Increased attention has been directed toward the identification and treatment of concomitant knee injuries associated with anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears to best restore knee biomechanics and function. Studies have reported that 43% of patients with ACL tears have concomitant lateral or medial meniscal tears. Meniscocapsular tears of […]

Early Osteoarthritis After Untreated Anterior Meniscal Root Tears

2017 OJSM

Menisci are crescent-shaped, fibrocartilaginous wedges that play an important role in complex knee mechanics and function. The menisci are primarily responsible for distributing loads through the tibiofemoral joint, joint stabilization, and congruency. The circumferential collagen fibers in the meniscus body continue into the anterior and posterior root insertional […]
