Abstract

The function of the meniscus and subsequently the importance of meniscus preservation are well known. Thirty-two patients who underwent arthroscopic meniscus repair between 1993 and 1995 were studied retrospectively. Twenty menisci were repaired using modified Henning inside-out technique and the remaining twelve meaisci, outside-in technique. The average delay in surgery was two hundred days. Follow-up was done from 1 year to 3 years (average 22.4 months). The medial meniscus was repaired in 22 cases and the lateral meniscus including two saucerized discoid meniscus in 10 cases. Fourteen patients had anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear and other associated knee injuries were lateral condyle fra'cture of femur in one case and lateral condyle &acture of tibia in one case. Assessment of the result was based on the evaluation form of the International Knee Documentation CommitteegKDC). Twenty-seven patients (84.3%) were normal to nearly normal. Abnormal and severely abnormal results were mainly affected by the result of treatment of ACL tear.
