Tunnel Notching

The edge of the tunnel must be notched to start the BioScrew (Linvatec, Largo, FL) (Fig. 6.59). This will allow the screw to start easily and avoid breaking the screw. The Notcher (Linvatec, Largo, FL) is inserted through the tibial tunnel to notch the femoral tunnel.

Figure 6.59. This demonstrates the notch in the edge of the tunnel to start the screw.
