Abstract

Abstract Efficient and successful arthroscopic surgery relies on methodical and well-organized suture management. However, it is relatively common, especially in complex arthroscopic procedures, that sutures invariability become entangled or twisted as a result of repeated suture shuttling from portal to portal and between individual suture limbs. When this occurs, this can make antegrade suture passage or arthroscopic knot tying challenging. We describe a simple and efficient technique that allows simultaneous retrieval of 2 suture limbs while ensuring that the sutures are disentangled.
