Abstract

The case of an individual with a bilateral anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear combined with a medial meniscus (MM) posterior root tear is described. A 34-year-old Japanese man with bilateral ACL rupture that occurred > 10 years earlier was diagnosed with bilateral ACL tear combined with MM posterior root tear (MMPRT). We performed a transtibial pullout repair of the MMPRT with ACL reconstruction. The tibial tunnels for the MM posterior root repair and ACL reconstruction were created separately. Postoperatively, a good clinical outcome and meniscal healing were obtained. Our surgical technique may thus contribute to anatomical MM posterior root repair and ACL reconstruction.
