Objective, subjective data similar between patients with, without peripheral nondegenerative MMTs
April 28, 2015

LOS ANGELES — No differences were found in objective and subjective results between patients with peripheral nondegenerative medial meniscus tears treated with trephination alone and a control group without meniscus tears, according to results presented at the Arthroscopy Association of North America Annual Meeting.

“Nondisplaceable, nondegenerative peripheral vertical medial meniscus tears can heal with trephination alone at the time of ACL reconstruction,” K. Donald Shelbourne, MD, said during his presentation. “Subjective functional scores are not statistically different than those of patients with intact menisci. Radiographic changes are uncommon and, when present, are minor.”
