Inverse knot: A personal sliding knot for arthrosopic surgery

Marco Conca, Silvio Taschieri, Massimo Del Fabbro, Riccardo Conca

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The development of arthroscopic reconstructive procedures has resulted in the creation of dedicated knots, sliding or not, to be used without skin incision and passed through the cannulas. Most of the recent studies are dedicated to realize and develop slip knots because they are easier and faster to use. The authors report their experience in use of a personal slip knot we called Inverse knot, due to the peculiar characteristic that is closed by the "post" strand.
