    In the last 30 years, meniscal repair has shown to be effective over the medium and long term in 70-80 % of cases. Despite these excellent results, this procedure represents, on an annual basis, no more than 2 % of meniscal surgery as a whole, suggesting that meniscal repair enjoys considerable potential for the years to come. Specific lesion types are becoming better known while at the same time surgical techniques are getting simpler. The trend is to less invasive surgery, with improved safety and greater technical precision. This article presents an overview of existing techniques, new surgical trends and established data.
