Abstract

Surgical reattachment of medial meniscus posterior root tear (MMPRT) with transtibial sutures can delay the presence of medial knee joint compartment osteoarthritis.Most of suture configurations are placed five mm away from the torn margin in the meniscal substance which is already degenerated and may decrease the pull out strengths of repair construct.The number of meniscus penetration may also be important considering meniscus tissue damage with more complex suture techniques impose the risk of suture cut out through the meniscus substance.
We introduce our loop-post suture construct technique which is simple, cheap and reproducible.
