Abstract

Medial meniscus root tears are becoming increasingly recognized in clinical practice as a source of profound pain and dysfunction in patients. There has been considerable debate about the cause of these distinct meniscus tears, and what the optimal treatment should be for an individual patient. Midterm medial meniscus root repair results suggest that in a well-aligned knee with minimal degenerative change, transtibial root repair is an effective technique for improving pain, function, and possibly preventing further cartilage degeneration.
