Arthroscopic Knots

- Discussion: 
- see suture
     - see arthroscopic rotator cuff repair
     - choice of knot depends on whether the suture repair will slide (vs not slide);
     - suture type:
           - Biomechanical evaluation of hand versus arthroscopically tied surgical knots
           - Heat Treatment of Arthroscopic Knots and Its Effect on Knot Security
           - Optimizing arthroscopic knots using braided or monofilament suture.
     - types of knots: (Arthroscopic Knot Tying)
           - Roeder
           - Weston
           - SMC
           - Tennessee Slider
