Featuring more than 260 photographs and easy-to-follow outlined instructions, this manual is the first step-by-step ""how-to"" guide to arthroscopic knot tying.
The authors explain the key concepts behind arthroscopic knot tying, show how to hold the suture and use the various knot-tying devices, and demonstrate all the steps necessary to tie a biomechanically sound arthroscopic knot.
The book covers 30 arthroscopic knots that are appropriate for repairing injuries of the shoulder, elbow, knee, and ankle. Detailed instructions for tying each knot are presented side by side with clear photographs depicting each step.
