Abstract

Although horizontal tears of the meniscus have historically been treated with partial meniscectomy due to poor vascularity within the tear, evidence suggests that repair of horizontal meniscal tears may be advantageous to partial meniscectomy. Furthermore, the addition of platelet-rich plasma has shown promise in improving meniscal healing. We present our technique of platelet-rich fibrin clot–augmented repair of horizontal cleavage meniscal tear.
