PURPOSE Our purpose was to evaluate the result of radial tears at the root of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus (PHMM) in terms of tibiofemoral contact mechanics and the effectiveness of pullout sutures for such tears. METHODS Eleven mature pig knees each underwent 15 different testing conditions with an intact, simulated (incised) radial tear at the root of the PHMM and placement of pullout sutures in the radial tears of the medial meniscus at 5 different angles of flexion (0 degrees… CONTINUE READING
