Extract

The well established importance of the meniscus in load transmission across the knee joint has led to the development of techniques to repair meniscal tears. Advances in our understanding of the basic biology and the healing of the meniscus have improved our ability to select appropriate tears for repair and to design methods to enhance meniscal healing. Both open and arthroscopic repair techniques have been found to be effective for meniscal suturing. The outside-in technique of arthroscopic repair of the meniscus was developed by Warren as a method to decrease the risk of injury to the peroneal nerve during arthroscopic repair of the lateral meniscus37. This technique is especially useful for repairing tears in the anterior portion of the meniscus, for suturing a meniscal replacement (such as an allograft or a collagen meniscal implant), and for inserting a fibrin clot into a repair site. This paper reviews the technique, indications, and results of meniscal repair with use of the outside-in method.
