Lateral Meniscus Repair Using Posterolateral Portal: Suture Hook Technique.


ABSTRACT: Lateral meniscus lesions result in loss of meniscus hoop stresses and can lead to lateral compartment overload and early degenerative changes. Arthroscopic suture repair provides good long-term results. However, posterior vertical tears in the peripheral area of the meniscus can be technically challenging to resolve. This Technical Note describes the suture hook technique using an accessory posterolateral portal. We believe it is a safe, effective method for repairing full vertical tears of the lateral meniscus.
