Anterior Medial Meniscal Root Tears: A Novel Arthroscopic All Inside Repair.

Osti L, Del Buono A, Maffulli N - Transl Med UniSa (2014)

Bottom Line: At the last appointment, the average Lysholm scores was improved from a pre-operative average value of 48±17 to a postoperative value of 91±7 (P<0.001); five patients (45.3%) were scored as excellent (≥95), and 7 (54.6%) as good (85-94).At the last appointment, 8 of 9 active patients practiced sport at the same preoperative level, 1 (8.5%) had changed to lower level of activity.No technique related complications were evident.

ABSTRACT

Background: Management of tears of the anterior and posterior roots of the meniscus is still controversial. We wish to propose a simple technique of suture anchor to repair tears of the anterior root of the medial meniscus.

Methods: Twelve patients, active males, underwent arthroscopic repair of the anterior meniscal horn between 2009 and 2011. All were assessed postoperatively at an average follow-up of 1 year after the index operation.

Results: At the last appointment, the average Lysholm scores was improved from a pre-operative average value of 48±17 to a postoperative value of 91±7 (P<0.001); five patients (45.3%) were scored as excellent (≥95), and 7 (54.6%) as good (85-94). At the last appointment, 8 of 9 active patients practiced sport at the same preoperative level, 1 (8.5%) had changed to lower level of activity. No technique related complications were evident.

No MeSH data available.


The passer is then advanced within the meniscal root, passing the suture within the meniscal tissue, and pulled out through the proximal superomedial portal. The other end of the non-absorbable suture is also shuttled within the root, and a mattress-suture repair is performed.
