Biomechanical testing revealed that meniscus root repair restores normal joint kinematics and contact pressures, and clinical studies assessing patients with root repairs documented healing via second-look arthroscopy and magnetic resonance imaging. Moreover, when compared with patients treated with meniscectomy, patients treated with meniscus root repairs demonstrated improved clinical outcomes and slowed progression of radiographic knee osteoarthritis.There is still uncertainty and controversy regarding the effectiveness of treatment strategies in clinical practice for medial meniscus root tears, their associated risks for subsequent procedures, and the associated costs over an extended period. In consideration of one surgical procedure to prevent another condition or knee operation, long-term projections of clinical outcomes and costs may be helpful to make informed decisions or provide accurate recommendations. Therefore, the purpose of the present study was to evaluate the long-term clinical effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of 3 strategies in the management of medial meniscus posterior root tears among those without osteoarthritis: arthroscopic meniscus root repair, arthroscopic meniscectomy, and initial nonoperative management.
