Knot tying is a critical component of reconstructive arthroscopic shoulder surgery. This video details an efficient and effective method of tying a surgeon's one-handed knot during arthroscopic surgery. The video covers how to master this technique, including making overhand and underhand throws, switching the post, sliding the throw using an arthroscopic knot-pusher, and past-point tightening to place and tension each half-hitch correctly. It also reviews the general principles of arthroscopic knot tying and compares various types of knots.
