Late disengagement of a knotless anchor

Arthroscopy. 2002 Oct;18(8):E40. doi: 10.1053/jars.2002.30008.


The knotless anchor is a new type of suture anchor that eliminates the need to perform arthroscopic knots, thus facilitating the performance of arthroscopic shoulder surgery. We report our experience in the use of this type of anchor in arthroscopic Bankart repair and discuss a complication related to using this type of fixation device.
