Krackow locking stitch versus locking premanufactured loop stitch for soft-tissue fixation: a biomechanical study.


PURPOSE To biomechanically compare construct elongation under loading conditions and to compare load to failure for the locking premanufactured loop stitch versus the Krackow stitch. METHODS Twenty porcine Achilles tendons were randomly assigned to receive the locking Krackow stitch with No. 2 FiberWire (Arthrex, Naples, FL) or the locking premanufactured… (More)
