      This is a preliminary report of four cases of meniscal displaced tears: two bucket handle medial meniscus tears, one complex tear in the avascular zone or lateral meniscus, and one longitudinal full-thickness tear on the lateral meniscus. These tears were treated by applying hi- frequency current stimulation to the tissues and obtaining total meniscal visual healing on a second arthroscopic view after 6 weeks.
