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 […]

Two-Tunnel Transtibial Repair of Radial Meniscus Tears Produces Comparable Results to Inside-Out Repair of Vertical Meniscus Tears

2017 AJSM

Complete radial meniscus tears constitute a unique subset of meniscus injuries, resulting in disruption of the circumferential fibers and compromising their ability to with-stand hoop stresses. This results in decreased contact area and increased tibiofemoral contact pressure, which can lead to the onset of an accelerated joint degenerative […]

A Novel Repair Method for Radial Tears of the Medial Meniscus


AJSM 2015

Complete radial tears of the medial meniscus have been reported to be functionally similar to a total meniscectomy. At present, there is no consensus on an ideal technique for repair of radial midbody tears of the medial meniscus. Prior attempts at repair with double horizontal mattress suture techniques have led to a reportedly […]
