Effects of Serial Sectioning and Repair of Radial Tears in the Lateral Meniscus
The American Journal of Sports Medicine, 08/09/2012
Ode GE et al. – A complete radial meniscal tear of the lateral meniscus has a detrimental effect on load transmission. Repair improved contact area and pressure. Contact pressures for repaired menisci were not significantly different from the intact state, but contact area was significantly different. Biomechanical performance of repair constructs was equivalent.
