Comparing meniscus repair methods on cadaver knees
A data frame with 18 observations on the following 4 variables.
Meniscus repair method (
1 = Vertical Suture,
2 = Meniscus Arrow,
3 = FasT-Fix)
Load at failure (in Newtons)
Displacement (in mm)
Eighteen, lightly embalmed, cadaveric knee specimens were used in a study to compare three different methods of meniscus repair. The specimens were randomly assigned to one of the three treatments: vertical suture, meniscus arrow, FasT-Fix. They were evaluated on three different response variables: load at failure, stiffness, and displacement.
