PASTA Bridge: Technique and Pull-out Testing

Dr. Alan Hirahara (Sacramento, CA) presents a live case and biomechanical testing data highlighting his PASTA Bridge Technique. Dr. Hirahara inserts two BioComposite SutureTaks medially using a Percutaneous Insertion Kit to precisely localize his anchor placement through tiny transtendon portals. He interconnects the sutures from the medial anchors using a pulley technique then uses a single knotless SwiveLock laterally to enhance footprint compression to maximize contact between tendon and bone.
