We report our results of arthroscopy which was used to treat 34 sport players in one year.
Patients are 21 males and 13 females with an average age of 21.5 years.
Fifteen of these cases had meniscal tears with ACL tear.
Reconstruction was performed for complete ACL tear and no treatment was performed for partial ACL tear. Suture was performed for indication cases and meniscectomy performed for others.
In these subjects, 7 cases of meniscal tear with partial ACL tear were investigated postoperatively.
Only meniscal suture were performed for these 7 cases and all cases returned to sport without problems.
We recommend suture of meniscus as a knee stabilizer, for cases of partial ACL tear.
