The FiberStitch™ implant is an innovative all-inside meniscal repair system that replaces hard PEEK implants with soft suture sheaths. 2-0 FiberWire® suture provides secure arthroscopic all-suture meniscus repair. The ergonomic handle is designed for single-handed implant delivery and active implant deployment technology minimizes needle exposure beyond the meniscus, eliminating the need to past-point the needle.
The ZoneNavigator System revolutionizes inside-out meniscal repair with single-handed control of needle placement. 2-0 SutureTape with meniscal repair needles are advanced and retracted in 1 cm increments using the ergonomic handle. Cannulas attach to the handle to efficiently target specific zones of the meniscus.
Knee Scorpion™ Suture Passer
Pass 0 and 2-0 FiberWire® sutures in tight recesses of the knee with the Knee Scorpion suture passer and retriever. With the lowest profile jaw available (3.2 mm), this one-handed, ergonomically designed suture passer eliminates extra steps for suture shuttling and retrieval with reliable FastPass technology. Pass and capture suture in one simple pass and apply multiple suture configurations with the Knee Scorpion suture passer.
Meniscal Cinch™ II Implant
The Meniscal Cinch II implant offers a linear deployment mechanism to provide ergonomic handling and simplicity. The low-profile cannula allows flexibility in tight locations in the knee and the crimped cannula supports active implant deployment. The 1 mm × 5 mm PEEK implants are secured by 2-0 coreless FiberWire® suture with a pre-tied, modified Weston sliding knot that tensions easily and facilitates secure, low-profile vertical or horizontal suture repairs.
Meniscal Repair and Resection Instrument Set
The Meniscus Repair and Resection Instrument Set contains Arthrex’s most popular instruments to address various meniscus procedures including meniscal root repair, all-suture meniscus repair, or meniscus contouring. For protection, the instruments are held securely within the slotted silicone pads. A removable shelf uncovers an open area for placement of additional instrumentation.
Meniscal Root Repair
Meniscal root avulsions are a challenging injury causing meniscal extrusion and loss of hoop stress distribution, which can lead to the development of knee arthritis.1 Securing the meniscus in a small bone socket has proven to be an effective means to restore hoop stresses and improve outcomes.2 The FlipCutter® II reamer and meniscal root marking hook allow for a minimally invasive RetroConstruction repair technique that helps preserve bone while securely fixing meniscal tissue.
Meniscus Ramp Lesion
Ramp lesions, which are commonly associated with ACL injuries and are often misdiagnosed,1 disrupt the meniscotibial ligament and the posteromedial meniscus in the meniscocapsular zone. Disruption of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus could lead to excessive forces within the knee joint and surrounding structures.
