Methods: Eighty-one patients with an arthroscopic meniscus shape–preserving surgery after isolated traumatic medial meniscal tear (repair: n 5 42; meniscectomy: n 5 39) were examined clinically (Lysholm score, Tegner score) and radiologically (Fairbank score, compared with the uninjured knee); the follow-up was divided into midterm (3.4 years; n 5 35) and long term (8.8 years; n 5 46). Additionally, the influences of the preoperative sports activity level and age at surgery were evaluated.

Meniscal repair in anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction: a long-term outcome study

This study demonstrates that good long-term outcomes can be obtained in patients up to over 12 years after combined ACL reconstruction and meniscal repair, and improved functional scores can be achieved when compared with ACL reconstructing and menisectomy.

Medial Meniscus Resection Increases and Medial Meniscus Repair Preserves Anterior Knee Laxity: A Cohort Study of 4497 Patients With Primary Anterior Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction

In ACLR, additional MM resection increased whereas MM repair preserved knee laxity in comparison with the ACLR knee with intact menisci, and surgeons should make every effort to repair the meniscus whenever possible to avoid the residual postoperative laxity present in theMeniscus-deficient knee.

Meniscectomy is the first criteria of failure of meniscal repair and Pujol 18 has shown meniscal preservation achieved with an amount of resected meniscus lower (35% of cases) or equal (52% of Cases) than it would have been.

Meniscal Root Tears

This study demonstrated that it was possible to establish a concise classification system to group patients with meniscal root tears by tear morphology and that recognition of tear pattern would affect treatment choice.

Results of Arthroscopic Repair of Partial- or Full-Thickness Longitudinal Medial Meniscal Tears by Single or Double Vertical Sutures Using the Inside-Out Technique

Single or double vertical sutures using the inside-out technique provide a high rate of healing in longitudinal medial meniscal tears, and concurrent ACL reconstruction, tear length, and smoking as factors had a significant effect on meniscal healing.

Consequences of Tibial Tunnel Reaming on the Meniscal Roots During Cruciate Ligament Reconstruction in a Cadaveric Model, Part 2

Tibial tunnel reaming for single-bundle PCL reconstruction in the anterolateral bundle footprint significantly reduced the ultimate failure strength and attachment area of the PM meniscal root.

Repair of a complete radial tear in the midbody of the medial meniscus using a novel crisscross suture transtibial tunnel surgical technique: a case report

In this case report, a complete radial tear of the medial meniscus midbody was repaired using a novel crisscross suture transtibial technique to promote the healing of the meniscal tissue.

Long-Term Results of Open Meniscal Repair

The long-term survival rate of repaired menisci was 79%, that in creased retear rates were encountered in unstable knees, and that radiographs provided evidence for the biomechanical function of successful meniscal repairs were concluded.

[Treatment of incomplete meniscal lesions in athletes].

It is found, that shaving and "needling" of an incomplete meniscal lesion in combination with partial synovectomi and standardized postoperative treatment leads to a high healing rate.

[Is meniscal repair an adequate procedure to prevent early osteoarthritis in athletes with chronic anterior knee instabilitity?].

The results demonstrate that complete recovery on sports activities after meniscal repair is not possible without reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament and that increasing osteoarthritic changes in athletes are not prevented.

Meniscal Healing after Meniscal Repair

A modern technique using all-inside fixation or outside-in sutures provided good clinical and anatomic outcomes and no statistically significant effect on ACL reconstruction or laterality (medial vs lateral) on overall healing after meniscal repair was identified.

Different Regional Healing Rates with the Outside-In Technique for Meniscal Repair

Poor healing with the outside-in technique was observed in patients with tears into the posterior horn of the medial meniscus, and the middle third of these menisci had not fully healed in five patients.
