Knotless anchors have an important role in arthroscopic acetabular labral repair. Different anchors show 2 primary failure modes: suture breakage and suture pullout from the anchor (“eyelet failure”). Knotless anchors show minimal displacement at physiological loads and should perform well for arthroscopic labral repair. Surgeons should consider the suture-passing device size and use a device that creates as small of a labral hole as possible.
