Lee DW et al. – Several techniques to repair the posterior medial meniscus root have been proposed, but most techniques are based on simple stitching. A modified Mason–Allen technique, recognized as a superior stitching method to repair rotator cuff in shoulder surgery, was applied to overcome the potential weakness of those simple stitching techniques. This newly modified Mason–Allen technique reproduces the locking effect of a conventional modified Mason–Allen stitch allowing the physiological meniscal extrusion.
