Medial meniscus posterior root tear (MMPRT) is now attracting increased attention as a risk factor for the development of osteoarthritis. However, the healing rate after root repair by the suture anchor technique or the pull-out technique is still low. Here we report on a technique of MMPRT repair using suture anchor combined with arthroscopic meniscal centralization and open wedge high tibial osteotomy (OWHTO). The purposes of this technique are (1) to distribute the meniscal hoop tension between the root repair site and the centralization site and (2) to reduce the load on medial meniscus by OWHTO...

PURPOSE: Injury or degeneration of the meniscus has been associated with the development of osteoarthritis of the knee joint. Meniscal allograft transplant (MAT) has been shown to reduce pain and restore function in patients who remain symptomatic following meniscectomy. The purpose of this study is to evaluate and compare the three-dimensional (3D) strain in native medial menisci compared to allograft-transplanted medial menisci in both the loaded and unloaded states. METHODS: Ten human cadaveric knees underwent medial MAT, utilizing soft-tissue anterior and posterior root fixation via transosseous sutures tied over an anterolateral proximal tibial cortical bone bridge...

BACKGROUND: Hypermobile lateral meniscus (HLM) is one of the causes of knee pain and a locking sensation. It is thought that disruption of the popliteomeniscle fascicles lead to hypermobility of the lateral meniscus in adults. In cases of HLM, the posterior portion of the lateral meniscus shows forward abnormal translation with knee flexion and backward translation with knee extension. We refer to this phenomenon as paradoxical motion. The purpose of this study was to report an arthroscopic HLM stabilization and evaluate the midterm clinical outcomes...

BACKGROUND: Stifle arthroscopy has been described to have high sensitivity and specificity in the evaluation of menisci in dogs, particularly for the medial meniscus. However, the visualization of menisci can be difficult. The use of femoral distractors in human medicine has been described to simplify demanding surgical procedures, such as meniscus transplantation. In veterinary medicine, stifle distraction has been reported to facilitate access to the joint and visualization of intra-articular structures, but there are no studies reporting the use of a stifle distraction technique while performing challenging surgical procedures, such as meniscal suture, in clinical patients...

Pressure distribution of the native ovine knee meniscus was compared to a medial meniscectomy and three treatment conditions including a suture reattachment of the native tissue, an allograft, and a novel thermoplastic elastomer hydrogel (TPE) construct. The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of a novel TPE hydrogel construct at restoring joint pressure and distribution. Limbs were loaded in uniaxial compression at 45°, 60°, and 75° flexion and from 0 to 181 kg. The medial meniscectomy decreased contact area by approximately 50% and doubled the mean and maximum pressure reading for the medial hemijoint...

Tamiko Kamimura, Masashi Kimura
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...

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...

BACKGROUND: Meniscal lesions represent one of the most common intra-articular knee injuries. Meniscus replacement devices are needed to restore load distribution and knee stability after meniscectomy. Fixation of these devices is crucial to the generation of hoop stresses and the distribution of loads in the joint. PURPOSE: To evaluate 2 different fixation techniques (suture endobutton and interference screw) for implantation of a novel meniscus device. STUDY DESIGN: Controlled laboratory study...

Giles Heilpern, Jo Stephen, Simon Ball, Andrew Amis, Andy Williams
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...

BACKGROUND: The meniscus plays an important role in the integrity of the knee joint. Therefore, meniscus tissue preserving techniques for the therapy of meniscus injuries seem to be reasonable. One of the important questions is whether meniscal repair can prevent the knee joint from early onset of osteoarthritis. METHODS: According to the review of the current literature, the principles of a successful meniscal repair are explained and the functional outcome and its impact on the prevention of osteoarthritis are analyzed in this article...

PURPOSE: To compare the radiographic results (in terms of graft extrusion) and the functional results of lateral meniscus allograft transplantations (MAT) performed with a bony fixation technique or with a soft tissue fixation technique after capsulodesis. METHODS: A prospective series of 29 consecutive lateral MAT was analyzed. The inclusion criterion for MAT was lateral joint line pain due to a previous meniscectomy. Malalignment, patients who had an Ahlback grade greater than II, and patients with a body mass index over 30 were considered as the exclusion criterion to prevent confounding results...

Medial meniscal root tears have been repaired using various methods. Arthroscopic all-inside repair using a suture anchor is one of the popular methods. However, insertion of the suture anchor into the proper position at the posterior root of the medial meniscus is technically difficult. Some methods have been reported to facilitate suture anchor insertion through a high posteromedial portal, a posterior trans-septal portal, or a medial quadriceptal portal. Nevertheless, many surgeons still have difficulty during anchor insertion...

A case of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction with meniscal repair in an osteogenesis imperfecta patient is reported. A 24-year-old female with osteogenesis imperfecta type 1a suffered from a valgus extension injury resulting in tear of ACL and medial meniscus. She underwent an arthroscopic-assisted ACL reconstruction and medial meniscus repair. Meniscal tear at the menisco-capsular junction of the posterior horn of medial meniscus was repaired with three absorbable sutures via inside-out technique...

PURPOSE: Repairs of the posterior horn of the lateral meniscus can be technically challenging. In contrast to medial meniscus repairs, the capsule around the posterior segment attachment of the lateral meniscus is quite thin. This study evaluates the clinical results of an arthroscopic all-inside repair technique for unstable, vertical, lateral meniscus tears, using a suture repair placed directly into the popliteus tendon. METHODS: A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data from the SANTI database was performed...

RATIONALE: Considering the risk of osteoarthritis following resection of a horizontally torn meniscus of the knee, repairing and preserving the meniscus as much as possible is preferred. We report 3 cases of restoration of horizontally torn menisci using a novel arthroscopic method we have called "all-inside interleaf vertical suture" that afforded preservation. PATIENT CONCERNS: The 3 patients (aged 14, 17, and 21 years) had knee pain through sports activity...

Treatment of symptomatic meniscal tears continues to evolve as we improve our understanding of the biomechanical role of the meniscus and its long-term importance to the health of the knee joint. Suture repair of meniscal tears is challenging, yet the incidence of repairs among our colleagues continues to rise as we aim to preserve meniscal tissue. Many elements of performing a repair are tedious and difficult, including proper meniscal preparation, reduction, mattress suture placement, and fixation. The tear pattern and location present another layer of difficulty...
