Evaluation of Suture Techniques for Medial Meniscus Root Repairs.
What is it about?
This article looked at different methods of placing sutures in a posterior medial meniscus root repair to assess the overall strain and stability.
Why is it important?
This study is important because it found that 2 simple sutures have the least displacement with cyclic loading for a medial meniscus root repair. Other complex suture patterns in the meniscus, while stronger, resulted in more displacement over time. Thus, it would indicate that 2 simple sutures is a very effective manner to repair the meniscus root tear.
