Abstract

Preservation of the meniscus and consideration for repair is important when treating meniscal tears. Many techniques for repair have been described. At present, all-inside, suture anchor-based meniscal repair systems are widely used. Arthroscopic all-inside hybrid meniscal suturing has been shown to have a low complication rate as the suture anchors remain outside the capsule leaving only the suture material inside the joint. Complications such as chondrolysis or arthrolysis have not been reported with these devices until now. The purpose of our study is to highlight the risks of osteochondral damage if these devices persist intra-articularly.

LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: IV.
