Abstract

There have been different descriptions of arthroscopic repair of the Palmer 1B tear of the triangular fibrocartilage complex (TFCC). Both outside-in and inside-out techniques are in common use, but both have the disadvantage of an extra incision to tie the knots and they are time consuming. We present a technique for all-inside repair of Palmer 1B TFCC tears using a technique known from meniscal repair in the knee joint.
