Video Information

In this video, Mr Tim Spalding discusses how to perform an outside-in meniscal repair using different techniques, including one using the Smith & Nephew Meniscal Mender. He also shows how to use one and two spinal needles to perform this technique.


His top tips for performing an outside-in meniscal repair are to use a test needle, a grasper for counter pressure, use different colour sutures, use a non-absorbable suture from the anterior and manipulate through the loop inside the joint or outside.
