VIDEO: Transtibial pullout technique provides reproducible repair of meniscal root tears

Shown are the steps for completion of a transtibial pullout technique with a tensionable anchor for repair of meniscal root tears. The technique involves reaming a 5-mm bone socket using a 6-mm FlipCutter (Arthrex). Sutures are then shuttled with a Firstpass Mini suture passer (Smith & Nephew) through various tunnels. The repair construct is ultimately tensioned under direct arthroscopic visualization.
