The Centerline™ System raises the bar for endoscopic soft tissue procedures by increasing safety, visualization, ergonomics and reducing the possibility of mechanical failures.Benefits:Safety – Centerline puts the surgeon in position to make the cut. By putting the surgeon’s hand in line with the blade, better control is afforded.Simplified – Straightforward instrumentation and a disposable blade mechanism that contains all moving parts, will speed procedures and lessen the chance for mechanical failures and maintenance issues.Straightforward – Single-handed, pull-blade technique enables a quick and exact technique.Optimal Comfort – Ergonomic design for better feel and function during the procedure.Convenient – Sterile single use disposable blade sheath streamlines OR and facility handling
With the help of our design surgeons Ned Amendola, MD, and Phinit Phisitkul, MD, Arthrex® has developed a comprehensive, completely disposable system for endoscopic gastrocnemius recession. This minimally invasive technique allows surgeons to significantly improve patients’ dorsiflexion with minimal morbidity or risk of wound complications. The EndoBlade™ System is a dual portal technique that is compatible with all 4 mm arthroscopes. Highlights of the all-in-one EndoBlade System include ergonomic single-use blades, a transparent slotted cannula with optimized length and diameter to allow for visual feedback and a unique plane finder to avoid sural nerve damage.
