  • PurposeTo investigate two different methods of suture fixation and tendon behaviour when using an Endobutton and a tripled tendon.MethodsThirty bovine tendons and foam blocks were randomly allocated to three groups: group 1: The tendon was doubled through 40-mm Endobutton; group 2: Tripled tendon—whip-stitched with No. 2 Ultrabraid, passed through an Endobutton and third limb secured to the loop via seven knots; and group 3: Tripled tendon—whip-stitched with No. 2 Fibreloop and fixed as group 2… CONTINUE READING
