Abstract

Preservation of the menisci is increasingly emphasized in orthopedic care of the knee. Techniques are rapidly emerging that allow easier accomplishment of this goal. In particular, the development of all-inside arthroscopic meniscal repair devices has facilitated more ready repair. A number of laboratory and clinical studies have examined these devices and comparisons with more traditional techniques have been made. Numerous reports of potential complications from these new technologies have also been described in the literature. This review covers the current options for treatment of meniscal repair, laboratory and clinical data, and also potential complications.
