Intraop video of Dr Peterson repairing a Bucket-Handle Medial Meniscus tear in a young athlete
This is a bad bucket handle medial meniscus tear in a teenage male basketball player. Note how displaced and unstable the meniscus tear is. Repair is shown that first utilizes an outside-in approach on the body of the meniscus. The repair is then completed with the use of Smith & Nephew FastFix all-inside anchors for the posterior horn. Finally bone marrow vents are created in the notch to allow blood and bone marrow to carry important healing factors and stem cells to the repaired cartilage. This is important since an ACL reconstruction was not necessary.
Intraop video of Dr Peterson repairing a PASTA tear with knotless anchor technique
Here is a new technique that Dr Peterson presents for knotless, trans-tendon repair of a supraspinatous PASTA tear (Partial Articular-Sided Tendon Avulsion). The technique utilizes a 4.5 helacoil anchor and one 4.5 footprint anchor. The approach is straight forward and quick. Separate suture passage and knot tying is avoided and instead the sutures are used as a mattress or bridge to the anterior knotless anchor.
