Abstract

SummaryLong-term results (average 5 to 11 years) of meniscus repair are discussed, based on review of the current English literature. Success rates of 73% to 100% have been documented in spite of repaired menisci being subjected to significant stresses. Clinical data indicate most patients have excellent or good function, and radiographic data demonstrate that successful repairs also function biomechanically.
