Abstract

Purpose : The purpose of this study was to determine the clinical outcome of meniscal repairs according to tern location and combined injury. Materials and Methods : From 1994, 73 meniscal repairs were underwent by arthroscopy and followed more than 1 year. The locations of torn meniscus were 29 red-red Bone, 36 red-white zone, 8 white-white zone. Twenty-six patients also had combined lesion including ACL injury 17 cases and treated simultaneously. Clinical result was evaluated by OAK system. Result : Healing rates(above good) were $94\%$ in isolated injury and $88\%$ in combined injury, especially $94\%$ in ACL injury. The result according to tern location were $90\%$ in red-red zone, $91\%$ in red-white zone, all in white-white zone. Conclusion : Meniscus tear with ACL injury should be repaired by arthroscopy, simultaneously. The meniscal tear of white-white zone could be healed by arthroscopic meniscal suture.
