ALVAREZ LOPEZ, Alejandro  y  GARCIA LORENZO, Yenima. Surgical techniques for meniscal injuries. Rev Cubana Ortop Traumatol [online]. 2015, vol.29, n.2. ISSN 0864-215X.

The menisci are anatomic structures that play important roles in the knee joint. In order to deepen the surgical treatment modalities in patients with meniscal injuries of the knee, a literature review of 300 articles was performed. These articles were published in PubMed, Medline by Hinari and information locator Endnote. 55 citations were selected, 51 of them are from the last 5 years. Two books were included. The surgical treatment modalities are meniscectomy, repairing and replacement. A brief anatomical and epidemiological description of the entity was made, and then delves into the details of the techniques used. In connection with repairing of different variants of treatment, indications and complications are reflected. Meniscus replacing has specific indications which are essential for its success. The treatment of meniscus lesions is usually surgery, particularly through the use of arthroscopic approach. The varieties of treatment are depending on the type of injury, material options and skills of the surgeon.

Palabras clave : meniscus; meniscus injuries; treatment modalities.
