Most arthroscopic rotator cuff reconstruction techniques require a method of securing the tendon to the bone to obtain a stable construct. The available options include knotless technology and suture welding, but the most common method uses suture anchors and knots. Tissue quality, surgical technique, repair material, and tension overload influence the stability of tissue repair. Arthroscopic knots are technically demanding because they are tied through cannulas with long-handled knot pushers. The strength of the repair is also influenced by the suture material used. In this study, we review the state-of-the-art of arthroscopic knots and suture materials being used for arthroscopic rotator cuff repair.
