Describes the nature of a clinical study. Types include:
The results of this study will optimize the care for patients with a meniscus root tear. Surgeons will be able to determine if MRR (meniscus root repair) with transtibial pullout technique is an effective treatment and will identify potential risk factors for poor clinical outcomes. In addition, investigators will determine if MRR is successful in delaying the radiographic progression of arthritis in the involved compartment.

What is this? (?)
Horizontal meniscus tears meeting specified criteria will be repaired by any commonly used suture technique. Subjects will be followed for 2 years to evaluate the effectiveness of the repair, by assessing the re-operation rate, and by assessing improvements in knee pain and knee function.
Closed for enrollment
The purpose of this study is to understand the benefits and safety of the NOVOSTITCH PRO Meniscal Repair (NOVOSTITCH PRO) system. The meniscus is a tissue in the knee joint. The NOVOSTITCH PRO is used during surgery to fix meniscus tears in the knee. It is unknown whether fixing a meniscus tear is better than the approach of removing the tear. Data will be collected on participants prior to surgery, at surgery, and for 2 years after surgery.
