The cases of revision total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are increasing. In this report, snapping phenomenon after final implantation of revision TKA has been presented. Snapping was caused by adhered iliotibial band (ITB) impinging against the lateral part of femoral component. Fractional lengthening the ITB by puncture resolved the snapping phenomenon. Surgeons should be aware of the presence of such a case which should be identified during operation to avoid secondary operations.
