Aim of this paper is to compare the biomechanical properties of the Pretzel knot with the selected arthroscopic knots and to test the mechanical safety of this knot. The hypothesis was that the Pretzel knot may have equal or better mechanical properties than the arthroscopic knots tested in this study.
