Meniscal Ramp Lesions: Anatomy, Biomechanics, and Clinical Outcomes
Meniscal ramp lesions have been reported to be present in 9% to 17% of patients undergoing anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction.
Detection at the time of arthroscopy can be accomplished based upon clinical suspicion and careful evaluation without the use of an accessory posteromedial portal. Options for surgical treatment include arthroscopic repair using an all-inside or inside-out technique. The purpose of this Technical Note is to detail our arthroscopic inside-out repair technique for meniscal ramp lesions.
