Technique for Arthroscopically Assisted Superficial and Deep Medial Collateral Ligament-Meniscotibial Ligament Repair With Internal Brace Augmentation

Arthrosc Tech. 2018 Oct 29;7(11):e1215-e1219. doi: 10.1016/j.eats.2018.08.006. eCollection 2018 Nov.


Deep medial collateral ligament (MCL) injury leads to meniscal lift-off and extrusion of the medial meniscus, resulting in instability and increased medial compartment pressures with subsequent cartilage damage. Repair of the deep MCL meniscotibial ligament in concert with superficial MCL repair or reconstruction is intended to restore the native anatomy , stability, and function of the medial meniscus. We present an arthroscopically assisted technique using standard arthroscopy portals and a medial open approach.
