Abstract

Introduction: Meniscus injury is associated with ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) injury. It would be ideal to repair all meniscus tears but failure rate is high. Aim: Our objective was to assess the success of meniscus repair. Method: All consecutive patients between Jan 2009 to Dec 2013 were retrospectively analysed. Results: 85 meniscus repairs were performed: 64 patients presented after 3 months (Group 1) and 21 patients had meniscus repair within 2 weeks. The failure rate group 1 was 23%-4.8% group 2 at a mean follow up of 11 months. Conclusion: Early meniscal repair had a higher success rate. Level III evidence.
