Meniscal extrusion, which results in compromised load-bearing function of the medial meniscus, is increasingly being recognized as clinically significant.1 One cause of medial meniscal extrusion is insufficiency of the medial capsule and meniscotibial ligaments (MTL). Knee capsule repair is effective in reducing meniscal extrusion resulting from MTL insufficiency and thereby restoring the potential for improved load-sharing across the medial compartment.
