Meniscus repair

Inside out technique

The inside-out meniscal repair technique has shown improved subjective and objective patient outcomes and remains the standard of care for meniscal repair. This technique is best used for posterior horn, middle- third, peripheral capsule, and bucket-handle tears. Advantages of the inside-out technique include the versatility of placing sutures, lower implant cost, and use of low-profile needles that allow for multiple sutures without compromising the structural integrity of the meniscus.
