The “Docking Technique” was first described by Dr. David Altchek. This technique reconstructs the UCL by looping a single continuous graft loop through converging Ulna bone tunnels and “docking” the sutured graft ends through two humeral tunnels, after which the two ends of the UCL graft are tied with non-absorbable suture over a bone bridge. The Docking technique can be performed using the Arthrex Elbow UCL Reconstruction Instrument Set. FiberWire and FiberLoop may be used to stitch the graft ends and for final fixation over the humerus bone bridge.
