The Micro SutureLasso™ replaces 18-gauge needles for arthroscopic suture passing. Sterile, disposable, stainless steel needles are 20-gauge at the tip and taper to 16-gauge at the handle to provide the added stiffness needed for percutaneous placement for arthroscopic suture passing in upper and lower extremities. The ergonomic plastic handle facilitates accurate placement and control. Advancement of a pre-loaded fine nitinol wire loop shuttles any suture through tissue. A selection of straight and curved shafts provides accessibility to difficult to reach structures.
The new QuickPass™ family of Lassos uses thumbwheels and a new ergonomic handle to quickly and easily advance the supplied Nitinol wire loop, a #2 FiberStick™ or a monofilament (PDS) suture. Sterile, single-patient use assures a sharp instrument every time.
The ReelPass SutureLasso™ contains 10 yards of blue #1 monofilament to provide the user a continuous supply without the need to reload. The ergonomic handle and thumbwheels were designed to easily advance the monofilament. The 1.5 mm tip diameter is the smallest on the market.
Rotation Lasso Suture Passer
Featuring a rotating and steerable loop for arthroscopic and open soft-tissue repair, the Rotation Lasso suture passer has a simple and intuitive lasso design. Its simplicity helps reduce procedural steps, prevents twists and tangles inside cannulas, and eliminates the need for outside suture shuttling. The deployable and durable rotating nitinol loop allows for an all-inside passing technique.
Small Diameter SutureLasso™
The Small Diameter SutureLasso™ feature a stiff shaft and a sharp, atraumatic tip with an outer diameter of only 1.8 mm. The SutureLasso SD is available in a variety of tip configurations and is preloaded with a Nitinol wire shuttle loop. A thumb pad is used for easy, one-handed wire advancement. Skip a shuttling step during margin convergence suturing or when using a PushLock anchor by loading a FiberStick directly through the SutureLasso SD in place of the Nitinol wire loop. The FiberStick is a #2 FiberWire with 12 inches stiffened to allow easy advancement through most cannulated instruments.
