Abstract

Case: We present a case of common peroneal nerve entrapment following inside-out lateral meniscus repair in a collegiate-level football player. To our knowledge, there are a limited number of cases describing this injury pattern in the literature, with none describing such in a college athlete. Conclusion: This case demonstrates that even with appropriate precautionary use of accessory portals and careful retraction, nerve entrapment can still occur, but with the identification and treatment of the compression, patients and even elite athletes can make a full recovery and return to their previous level of function.
