Meniscal suture is a surgical technique that aims to repair meniscal lesions instead of removing the area of the injured meniscus. However, we know, and this recent study confirms, that the rate of complications and failures is high: 25%, in addition to significant differences in results depending on the instruments used. In this case, two types of sutures were compared: Fast-Fix and Biofix, the first being superior to the second.
