Baseball-Stich of Tendon

Fixation of -Bone Plug   |  List of figures   |  The free end

Both holding sutures are pulled around the hook at the end of the working station. They are tensioned so that the K-wire bends in a curve. There is approximately a 45 angle between the bony end and the tendinous part of the graft. In this position the sutures are clamped together. Using a baseball stitch and absorbable suture material the three tendon strands are sewn to each other at the area where they will be held with the interference screw inside the femoral socket.
