Meniscal repair is supported by well-founded biomechanic principles. It is hoped that meniscal preservation will prevent osteoarthritis from occurring after a total meniscectomy. Three techniques of meniscal repair are presented: open repair, closed arthroscopic repair, and combined incision and arthroscopic repair. The surgical technique and complications of each repair are explained.
