Clear Open Cannulas
The Clear Open Cannulas, with detachable handle option, facilitate instrument introduction by allowing the user to freely see the instruments entering the joint, while providing an unrestrained field of view. Manufactured from a shatterproof polycarbonate material, these strong cannulas resist bending. The tapered and blunt tips may eliminate iatrogenic cartilage or tissue damage during instrument insertion. Each can be used with a variety of quick connect handles that can be removed while the cannula is still in place.The Clear Open Cannula, used in conjunction with the AR-2001 Tear Drop Handle, is the perfect option for atraumatic instrument introduction and removal from the joint.
Knee Obturator for Posterior Portals
The Knee Obturator has been specially designed to simplify the location and creation of posterior knee portals as well as introduction of a working cannula. Posterior portals are often necessary for several common procedures such as; loose body removal, PCL reconstruction, meniscal root avulsion repair, and popliteal cyst debridement.Current “outside-in” techniques can be time consuming and put posterior structures at risk of damage with sharp spinal needles and scalpels. The Knee Obturator lets surgeons quickly create the portal from the inside-out. The unique curvature fits around the cruciate ligaments and around the back of the femoral condyles. The tapered eyelet tip facilitates insertion of a PassPort Button Cannula with a traction suture or acts as a switching stick for cannula insertion.
PassPort Button™ Cannula
The PassPort Button™ Cannula help maximize visibility and maneuverability inside and outside of the arthroscopic work space. The double-dam one-piece molded design has low-profile flanges that seat flush to the skin and soft tissue. These flanges create a stable portal that allows instruments to be inserted and removed, without the concern of cannula loss.
The Shoehorn Cannula has a longitudinal slot on top of the cannula to allow oversized instruments to be introduced. Each cannula is supplied with a disposable obturator.
The translucent Twist-In Cannula allows direct arthroscopic visualization of instruments through the cannula. The flexible option easily conforms to large or curved instruments. Each cannula is supplied with a “No-Squirt” Cap and disposable obturator. The threaded design greatly inhibits cannula “fall-out” during instrument removal and allows for capsule retraction for visualization. The side port may be used for irrigation inflow or passive outflow.
