Sample text

Lock the knot with a series of three alternating half hitches with post switching (Fig. 21F ). o Throw an underhand loop on the original post. Tension with the knot pusher. o Switch posts. o Throw an overhand loop over the new post. Tension with the knot pusher. o Switch posts. o Throw an underhand loop on the original post again. Tension with the knot pusher. 36 Arthroscopic Duncan Loop (Hangman's Knot) (Fig. 22) FIGURE 22. A-F. Arthroscopic Duncan loop.  Make the post limb half as long as the loop limb.

Pull the loop into the joint with the knot pusher on the loop limb (Fig. 17B )  Withdraw the knot pusher while maintaining tension on the post limb.  Throw an underhand loop around the same post (Fig. 17C )  Pull the loop into the joint and seat the knot with the knot pusher. Once the two hitches are seated, past-point to cinch the knot down (Fig. 17D ).  Switch posts and throw an underhand loop around the new post (Fig. 17E ).  Pull the loop into the joint, seat the knot with the knot pusher, and past-point to cinch the knot down (Fig.

16C ).  Advance the knot down with the knot pusher on the loop limb until the hitch is gently seated against the first hitch (Fig. 16D ).  Place the knot pusher on the post strand and past-point the knot pusher on the post strand so the post limb is parallel to the loop limb. When the limbs are parallel, apply symmetric tension to each limb (Fig. 16E ).  Inspect the knot to ensure that it did not convert into non-identical half hitches (Fig. 16F ).  Repeat steps A to G to increase the knot-holding capacity of the square knot.
