Abstract

SummaryThe T-Fix suture anchor permits an all-inside meniscal repair. This avoids risk of injury to the posterior medial and posterior lateral neurovascular structures as well as soft tissue entrapment. Although technically challenging to master, vanous techniques using this device allow repairs of vertical, horizontal, and complex flap tears. The device, composed of a polyacetal bar and braided polyester suture, is well tolerated by the joint. There is no evidence of articular damage or lingering problems from the plastic bar. This device is safe and effective for use in meniscal repair.
