A meniscal root tear is one of the common knee injuries that can lead to degenerative changes in the knee joint. Meniscal root repairs can restore proper biomechanics of the knee joint. We have developed a suturing technique that uses a tibial tunnel for a pullout suture medial meniscal root repair. This is a straightforward technique that helps to promote simple suturing of the medial meniscal root, avoid iatrogenic injuries to the articular cartilage, and produce an additional working portal during a meniscal root repair.
