    The aim of this study was to determine whether primary repair for intraoperative injury of the medial collateral ligament (MCL) can achieve satisfactory clinical results when compared to the clinical results of patients with no MCL injury. Simultaneously, we sought to determine the differences between 2 methods of primary repair (anchor suture and staple) in terms of their clinical outcomes.In our institute, 3897 total-knee arthroplasties (TKAs) were performed between 2003 and 2014. Sixty-five patients who suffered an MCL injury during the TKA procedure and in whom the injury was repaired with a suture anchor or staple (suture anchor: 36 vs staple: 29) were studied. A matched group of 65 patients without an MCL injury was selected to serve as the control group. Subjective feelings of instability and functional outcomes were assessed using the knee society (KS) score and the Western Ontario & McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index (WOMAC). Objective stability was evaluated by the measurement of opening angles in extension and at 30° of knee flexion on valgus stress radiographs. The clinical outcomes and stability results were compared between the suture anchor and staple methods.The KS and WOMAC scores in patients who received primary repair of MCL injury during TKA improved from 50.6 ± 13.1 to 87.3 ± 7.3 (P
