 Abstract
A secure slip knot is very important in the arthroscopic surgery of the shoulder joint. The new 'Hallym Slider', developed by the first author(KCN), has the properties of being a simple sliding and one-way locking knot. This technique can be performed alone without an assistant and has no accidental premature locking during the knot tying. The initial slip knot determines the adequacy of tissue approximation and consequent healing. The 'Hallym Slider' has excellent initial holding capacity, maintaining tension on soft tissue while additional half-hitches are being tied. It locks readily, it takes less time to tie than numerous square knots, and it is not as bulky as other knots. Therefore, we introduce this new sliding and one-way locking knot during the arthroscpic surgery of shoulder.
