Meniscus helps to optimize knee joint function, because it plays a key role in load transmission, shock absorption, joint stability, lubrication, articular cartilage nutrition and neuromuscular proprioception.
Therefore, it is recommended to repair the peripheral and red/white meniscus tear. Total arthroscopy solves many limitations of traditional meniscus repair techniques.
Suture-based all-inside technology is popular because of the following advantages:
Total internal repair can be safely performed without posterior incision;
Allow vertical or horizontal mattress suture to be placed on the surface of femur or tibia of meniscus;
Reduce the operation time;
Reduced the need for the first assistant.
This can be achieved by similar healing results of varus meniscus repair technology.
