INTRODUCTION: Arthroscopic meniscectomy and medial meniscal repair are frequent procedures, liable to be complicated by iatrogenic cartilage lesions, especially in tight knee. Medial collateral ligament pie-crusting was developed to counter this, but, although the technique is employed, its impact on medial laxity has not been precisely determined. We therefore conducted a prospective observational study to compare radiographic laxity preoperatively versus 6 weeks following pie-crusting...

Posterior root medial meniscus (PRMM) tears have shown to be biomechanically equivalent to complete meniscectomy. Drawbacks from PRMM tears repair are unsatisfactory healing rates. In this case report, we outlined a PRMM reconstruction with gracilis graft healing outcome in chronic PRMM tear case, based on clinical and MRI evaluation. A 60-year-old man reported a chief complaint of increasing pain on the right knee joint in the last 1 year after a deep-flexion injury. On MRI investigation, we confirmed the chronic PRMM tear as Osteoarthritis Kellgren-Lawrence grade II...

Meniscus injuries are very common in the knee joint. Treating a damaged meniscus continues to be a scientific challenge in sport medicine because of its poor self-healing potential and few clinical therapeutic options. Tissue engineering strategies are very promising solutions for repairing and regenerating a damaged meniscus. Meniscus is exposed to a complex biomechanical microenvironment, and it plays a crucial role in meniscal development, growth, and repairing. Over the past decades, increasing attention has been focused on the use of biomechanical stimulus to enhance biomechanical properties of the engineered meniscus...

The lateral tibial eminence shares a close relationship with the anterior root of the lateral meniscus. Limited studies have reported traumatic injury to the anterior meniscal roots in the setting of tibial eminence fractures, and reported rates of occurrence of concomitant meniscal and chondral injuries vary widely. The purpose of this article is to describe the case of a 28-year-old woman who had a complete avulsion of the anterolateral meniscal root caused by a tibial eminence fracture with resultant malunion and root displacement...

The lateral meniscus is vital in dissipating the force in the lateral compartment of the knee. A complete radial tear of the meniscus can lead to extrusion, rendering it nonfunctional and resulting in deleterious arthritic changes to the lateral compartment. Arthroscopic repair of a complete radial tear of the lateral meniscus poses a challenge to orthopaedic surgeons. Although some would advocate for meniscectomy, we present a technique for an outside-in repair using 3 sutures and standard arthroscopic portals...

We present a technique to implant autogenous meniscal fragments using a fibrin clot to repair a large degenerative meniscal defect. A total of 25 mL of the patient's blood is agitated for 10 minutes using a stainless steel swizzle stick in a sterile glass syringe. The elastic fibrin clot subsequently adheres to the stick in a tubular manner. Using arthroscopic debridement, native meniscal tissue is resected. The meniscal fragments are packaged into the tubular-shaped fibrin clot, and the tube is tied at both ends using 4-0 absorbable sutures...

Although the outside-in method has been used to treat injuries to the anterior segment of the meniscus, this method has drawbacks including the need to make a skin incision and portals for arthroscopy, pain caused by strangulation of the subcutaneous tissue and joint capsule, and protrusion of the knots. To resolve these problems, we present an all-inside method that enables simple suture of injuries to the anterior segment of the meniscus through arthroscopic portals placed only on the anteromedial and lateral sides without using a specific instrument...

Introduction: Platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) is the only autologous blood product that releases growth factors and has scaffolding properties. We hypothesized that the use of PRF and Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) would improve operative results, including the recovery of function and repaired meniscus. Materials and Methods: Seventeen patients underwent arthroscopic meniscus repair with PRF and PRP (PRF group) using our novel device for the injection of the PRF into the joint...

Purpose: Meniscal surgery is one of the most performed orthopaedic procedures. Because of its chondroprotective properties, meniscal repair should be attempted whenever possible. Several techniques are described in literature, e.g. all-inside repair using FasT-Fix System from Smith & Nephew. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome at a minimum of 12 years following meniscal repair using FasT-Fix System. Materials and Methods: Patients who underwent meniscal repair using FasT-Fix System in the time from 2001 to 2003 were analyzed...

Medial meniscal root injury is known to cause an increase in tibiofemoral contact pressure and results in early osteoarthritis. There have been many reports on meniscal root repairing techniques, which can be categorized into 2 groups. One is transosseous suture, and the other is anchor suture repair. Both techniques show improvement in not only clinical performance, but also radiographic finding. However, the meniscal root repair procedure must be performed by experienced physicians. Most techniques require a posteromedial portal, which takes time and may even complicate the procedure...

The biomechanical consequences of a tear of the posterior root of the medial meniscus are comparable to that of a complete meniscectomy. The integrity of the meniscal roots is crucial to enable the important function of load sharing and shock absorption. An untreated root tear leads to extrusion and loss of function of the meniscus causing early degenerative arthritis of the respective knee compartment. Meniscal root repair can be achieved by 2 main techniques: indirect fixation using pullout sutures through a transtibial tunnel with extracortical fixation and direct fixation using suture anchors...

Medial meniscus posterior root tears are common injuries, especially in the Asian world. This injury must be repaired where indicated to restore knee biomechanics and prevent arthritis. Suturing the meniscus using suture tapes provides good hold of the tissue. The use of a 70° arthroscope and creation of a transseptal portal improve visualization of the posterior compartment. Creation of a high posteromedial portal achieves the correct trajectory for the suture anchor insertion. A knotless suture anchor can be used to fix the posterior root at its anatomic attachment site...

BACKGROUND: Ramp lesions were initially defined as a tear of the peripheral attachment of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus at the meniscocapsular junction. The separate biomechanical roles of the meniscocapsular and meniscotibial attachments of the posterior medial meniscus have not been fully delineated. PURPOSE: To evaluate the biomechanical effects of meniscocapsular and meniscotibial lesions of the posterior medial meniscus in anterior cruciate ligament (ACL)-deficient and ACL-reconstructed knees and the effect of repair of ramp lesions...

Meniscus injuries are extremely common with approximately one million patients undergoing surgical treatment annually in the U.S. alone. Upon injury, the outer zone of the meniscus can be repaired and expected to functionally heal but tears in the inner avascular region are unlikely to heal. To date, no regenerative therapy has been proven successful for consistently promoting healing in inner-zone meniscus tears. Here, we show that controlled applications of connective tissue growth factor (CTGF) and transforming growth factor beta 3 (TGFβ3) can induce seamless healing of avascular meniscus tears by inducing recruitment and step-wise differentiation of synovial mesenchymal stem/progenitor cells (syMSCs)...

Although the consequences of traumatic meniscus tears and the importance of meniscal repair are well-established in adults, the same cannot be said for the young population. Better evidence regarding the outcomes following traumatic meniscal tears in children would improve our understanding of this increasing pathology and help define important factors in deciding the best treatment option. A systematic review was performed according to the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis guidelines using the Cochrane Database of Systematic Review, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials, MEDLINE Ovid, and MEDLINE PubMed databases...

Background: A common treatment for radial tears of the meniscus has historically been partial meniscectomy. Owing to the poor outcomes associated with partial meniscectomy, repair of the meniscus is an important treatment option. It is important to evaluate different repair techniques for radial tears of the meniscus. Purpose/Hypothesis: The purpose of this study was to evaluate 2 novel techniques to repair radial tears of the lateral meniscus. The 2 techniques were compared biomechanically with the cross-suture method with an inside-out technique...

A meniscus tear often happens during active sports. It needs to be repaired or replaced surgically to avoid further damage to the articular cartilage. To address the shortage of autologous meniscal cells, we designed a co-culture system of synovial stem cells (SMSCs) and meniscal cells (MCs) to produce a large cell number and to maintain characteristics of MCs. Different ratios of SMSCs and MCs at 3:1, 1:1, and 1:3 were tested. Mono-culture of SMSCs or MCs served as control groups. Proliferation and differentiation abilities were compared...

PURPOSE: Recently, it has been recognized that meniscocapsular ('ramp') lesions of the posterior one-third of the medial meniscus frequently occur during injuries causing ACL rupture, and that these lesions are easily missed at arthroscopy. Furthermore, it is clear that these lesions are biomechanically significant, adding to the deficits caused by ACL rupture, and that their repair can reverse this. The efficacy of an all inside repair technique has been questioned by some authors and by those who advocate a suture shuttle technique via an accessory posteromedial portal...
