Abstract

Chondral injury after arthroscopic meniscal suture repair is rare. We present a case of chondral injury due to the migration of suture after meniscal repair. The aberrant suture that remained temporarily at the medial tibiofemoral joint may have led to the chondral lesion of the femoral medial condyle and the tibial medial plateau at the weight-bearing portion.

Keywords: Meniscal suture, Chondral lesion, Arthroscopy, Tibiofemoral joint, Chondral injury.
