Meniscus Repair and Replacement: New Techniques, Indications and Biologic Augmentations (AANA22)
  • $40 for AANA-Members
  • $80 for Non-Members
ICL Description
The meniscus is vital to normal knee function and the health of the articular cartilage. While meniscus tears are very common, we proportionately devote little time and resources into improving our surgical indications and technique for meniscus preservation and restoration. Recently there have been advances in recognition of tear pattern and surgical treatment of meniscus pathology. As a surgeon, it is important to understand how and when patients can benefit from these procedures. This course provides a case-based approach to guidelines on how to recognize and treat a variety of meniscus pathology in the isolated and concomitant setting. Recognition of specific tear patterns, including full-thickness radial tears, complex tears, and root tears are emphasized. Variations of surgical techniques, such as transtibial pull-out for root tears, novel all-inside techniques, gold standard repair techniques, and transplantation are also covered. In addition, emerging biologic augmentation is discussed.
Learning Objectives
At the completion of the instructional course, the participants should be able to:
  1. Recognize tear patterns from preoperative imaging, indications for different types of meniscus repair as well as evolving techniques, indications and techniques for meniscus transplantation.
  2. Recognize concomitant pathology that may need to be addressed.
