Figure 1 – Introduction of suture thread within needle and placement of loop inside the knee Figure 2 – First intraarticular loop after removing the needle Figure 3 – Second needle passage and second wire inside the knee Figure 4 – Both wires are visible inside the joint. The second wire is pulled through the first loop through the arthroscopic portal Figures 5 and 6 – The loop still on the knee is pulled out completely through the meniscus Bibliography Figure 7 – The suture is positioned and ready to be tightened externally over the capsule Correspondence Pedro Manuel Serrano – pms1983@gmail. com Serviço de Ortopedia e Traumatologia Hospital de Santo António
