Abstract

Purpose : To evaluate tile clinical results of resorbable meniscal arrow fixation for repairable meniscal tear with concurrent anterior cruciate ligament(ACL) reconstruction. Materials and Methods : Between April, 1997 and June, 1999, we performed resorbable meniscal arrow fixation and ACL reconstruction simultaneously for 18 cases of repairable meniscal tears with ACL injuries. Nine cases were acute injuries, 5 cases, subacute and 4 cases, chronic. The average follow-up was 21.5 months($12\~38$ months). Results : The healing rate was $89\%$ for acute injuries, $80\%$ for subacute injuries and $50\%$ for chronic injuries. Conclusion : Resorbable meniscal arrow fixation with concurrent ACL reconstruction is a good treatment modality for acute and subacute injuries.
