Fig. 3. Schematic posterior view of the procedure. Under arthroscopic visualization from the anteromedial portal, the adhesions of the avulsed fragment to the posterior capsule and the medial wall of the posterior septum were debrided using a motorized shaver through the posteromedial portal. The medial and lateral loops of the 0.55-mm suture wire inserted into the posteromedial compartment via bone tunnels made by a 2.0-mm Kirschner wire were opened by forceps. Fixation thread was passed through a 16-gauge needle inserted into the two loops. The two loop wires attached to the thread were pulled outside, and the thread was fixed on the anterior aspect of the tibia. In this operation involving only the posteromedial compartment, the fragment was reduced and fixed tightly to the bony bed.
