Abstract

As the importance of meniscal preservation has become recognized, meniscal repair has become a more commonly practiced procedure. We briefly review the current, commonly accepted indications, techniques, and our rehabilitation protocol for meniscal repair. Both open and arthroscopic repairs are reviewed, including the arthroscopic techniques classified as inside-out, outside-in, and all inside. We conclude with a review of the results of meniscal repair and some thoughts on future directions.
